Love Potion #9

"What's the secret," you ask?

Parfait Amour

15 drops essence of lemon
10 drops essence of citron
5 drops essence of coriander
650 gr quality 90 proof alcohol
800 gr chunk sugar
650 gr rainwater

Add the drops of the various essences directly to the alcohol and mix well.

Dissolve the sugar in the rainwater, and add this solution to the alcohol, add food coloring to the mix to make it pink, if you so desire, then strain this mixture through a paper filter.

[Note to our readers down south and out west: please send rainwater.]
