Stepony

Drinks
Historic

A kind of raisin wine. Known at least since Thomas Blount's 'Glossographia' of 1656; "Stipone, a kind of sweet compound liquor, drunk in some places of London in the summer time."


Original Receipt in 'The Closet Of Sir Kenelm Digby Knight, Opened ' (Digby 1669)

To make Stepony. Take a gallon of Conduit-water, one pound of blue Raisins of the Sun stoned, and half a pound of Sugar. Squeeze the juyce of two Limons upon the Raisins and Sugar, and slice the rhinds upon them. Boil the water, and pour it so hot upon the ingredients in an earthen pot, and stir them well together. So let it stand twenty four hours. Then put it into bottle (having first let it run through a strainer) and set them in a Cellar or other cool place.
