Almond Shrub

1 qt Rum or brandy
1 glass Orange juice
Rind of 1 Lemon
1/2 – 1 lb Sugar
1 glass Milk
5 – 10 drops bitter Almond flavoring / essence

Put into gallon or half-gallon jar the spirits, thin lemon peel, orange juice, and sugar. Now take the essence of bitter almonds (you can use any amount you please) and add it to the glass of milk. Mix thoroughly and pour into the jar. Cover, put in a warm place (65-70 degrees fahrenheit), and keep it there until the milk has curdled. This takes from one to three hours. Then filter through filter paper and bottle. Rest it for two weeks before drinking it.
