MRS SENATOR KENNA’S REGENT’S PUNCH

From 1889:

In connection with this I give you a recipe for Regents punch which Mrs Senator Kenna uses at her receptions. Mrs Kenna writes that it is delicious.

One pound of loaf sugar or rock candy, one large cup of strong tea (made), three wine glasses of brandy, three wine glasses of rum, one bottle of imported champagne, two oranges (juice only) three lemons, one
large lump of ice.
“Tell your readers,” said a man, a gentleman of the old school, and in beverages as of cookery, “Tell your readers that better punch was never brewed.”
