Fluid extract of juniper berries, 2 fluidounces.

Simple elixir, 14 fluidounces.

Holland gin, 2 fluidounces.

Carbonate of magnesium, a sufficient quantity.

Triturate the fluid extract of juniper berries in a capacious mortar with carbonate of magnesium in amount sufficient to form a creamy mixture, then gradually add the simple elixir, stirring well, and filter. Lastly, mix the filtrate with the Holland gin.

Each fluidrachm of the finished elixir represents seven and one-half minims of fluid extract of juniper berries. A formula for elixir of juniper berries was suggested in the Druggists' Circular, 1878, which contained the ingredients upon which we have based our process.
