MM format by Ursula R. Taylor. This is a necessary refreshment at all parties. Boil 2 quarts of milk with a sitck of cinnamon, then let it stand to be quite cold, first taking out the cinnamon stick. Then blanch 4 oz. of the best sweet almonds, then pound them in a marble mortar with a little rosewater. Mix well with the milk and sweeten to your taste. Boil again for only a few minutes, just in case the almonds are oily. Strain through a fine sieve, till smooth and free from almonds; serve it either cold or luke-warm in glasses with handles.
