Curacoa (Liqueur)

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

Peterson's Magazine

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

March, 1861

Boil a quart of water in a very clean stewpan; add to it, bit by bit, a pound of dark brown sugar-candy. When the whole is dissolved, boil up the syrup, then pour it into a deep dish to cool.  into a quart of spirits of wine put one hundred and twenty drops of oil of bitter orange; when this latter is dissolved, mix it with the syrup before mentioned, but not until it is cool; then filter and bottle the liquor, and put it by for use.
