Method

The rule is one pound of sugar to every dozen of fruit. If pine-apple is fresh, add one more pound of sugar. Mix sugar with fruit and juice, and let stand. When ready to serve add water and ice, to keep cool. The sugar and some water may be boiled to a syrup, allowed to cool, and the fruit and juices added afterward.
