4 oz Red wine
1 oz Simple syrup
12 oz Lemon juice
1 sli Lemon (for garnish)
2   Raspberry (a couple for garnish, optional)

Historically garnish was determined by season, so add raspberries to the mint sprig in spring.
Mentions Jerry Thomson's How to Mix Drinks (1862), but as context rather than as the original recipe.
