1847 Oxford night caps (4th edition)
Some prefer it without the spices, others without lemons.
To each gallon of water add four pounds of the whitest, purest, and best tasted honey, and the peeling of two lemons ; boil it half an hour. Scum it when cold. Put it into a cask, add some yeast to it ; when it has done fermenting, stop the cask up close, and at the expiration of eight months bottle it off.
If this liquor is properly kept, the taste of the honey will go off, and it will resemble Tokay both in strength and flavour.
