Rub some of the sugar, in lumps, on two of the lemons until they have imbibed all the oil from from, and put it with the remainder of the sugar into a jug; add the lemon juice (but no pips), and pour over the whole a quart of boiling water. When the sugar is dissolved, strain the lemonade through a piece of muslin, and, when coool, it will be ready for use.
The lemonade will be much improved by having the white of an egg beaten up with it; a little sherry mixed with it also makes this beverage much nicer.
