Press the juice from the blackberries.

Add 2 pounds of sugar per each quart of juice and 1/2 ounce each of nutmeg and cloves; boil all together for 5 to 10 minutes

Allow to get cold; add a bit of brandy.

"To make another herb drink - Orange flower brandy. Take a gallon of French Brandy, boil a pound of orange flowers a little while, and put them in, save the water and with that make a syrup to sweeten it." - E.Smith, The Complete Housewife, 1736
