A favorite beverage, made with claret or port. It ia prepared as follows: roast four good-sized bitter oranges till they are of a pale-brown color, lay them in a tureen, and put over them half a pound of pounded loaf-sugar, and three glasses of claret; place the cover on the tureen and let it stand till the next day. When required for use, put the tureen into a pan of boiling water, press the oranges with a spoon, and run the juice through a sieve; then boil the remainder of the bottle of claret, taking care that it does not burn; add it to the strained juice, and serve it warm in glasses. Port wine will answer the purpose as well as claret. "Bishop" is sometimes made with the above materials, substituting lemons instead of oranges, but this is not often done when claret is used. See recipe No 38, in ''The Manual for the Manufacture of Cordials, etc.," at the latter part of this work.
