Family Recipe Friday: Wedding Punch

My wedding bouquet(From my great-grandmother's 1909 publication of 'Mrs Beeton's Every-Day Cookery' - see this post for more information.)

Today's the day William & Kate tie the knot so here's a recipe to toast the Royal couple...

INGREDIENTS.-I quart of champagne, I bottle of claret, I bottle of seltzer water iced, I wineglassful of curaçoa, sugar to taste, ½ pint of crushed ice, strips of cucumber, sprigs of young mint.

METHOD.-Mix all the ingredients together, and serve with the mint and cucumber floating on the surface.
