Essence Of Clove

Infuse a drachm of oil of cloves in two ounces of the strongest spirits of wine, apothecary's measure.

Clove Water

Mix a little cinnamon with the cloves, or the scent will be too strong; allow half a score of cloves to a quart of water; put in a good piece of sugar; let them infuse some time over hot embers, or in a warm place; then strain it for use.
