Lime sherbet recipe: grate zest of 15 lemons and add to 200g of castor sugar. Muddle together and then add 600ml of lime juice. Heat if needed to dissolve the sugar and then strain.

During the reign of William III, a garden fountain was once used as a giant punch bowl. The recipe included 560 gallons of brandy, 1200 pounds of sugar, 25,000 lemons, 20 gallons of lime juice and five pounds of nutmeg. The bartender rowed around in a small boat, filling up guests' punch cups. Funnily enough, it was William III who first brought gin to England. Many thanks Bill!
