Metheglin

Drinks

Mead flavoured with herbs, known since the mid 1500's.

Tobias Venner's book of 1620 about the history of Bath suggests "Rosemary, Hyssop, Time, Orgaine, and Sage". Digby 1669 contains many receipts for metheglins, such as "Sir Thomas Gower's Metheglin for Health" which calls for "Sweet-bryar-leaves, of Sweet-marjoram, Rosemary, Thyme, of each one a handful: Flowers of Marigold, Borrage, Bugloss, Sage, each two handfuls" to be mixed with the water and honey by "a lusty Servant, his Arms well washed".
