When of a suitable consistence, add the remainder of the oil and water alternately, with constant stirring, avoiding frothing. Transfer to a bottle capable of holding one-fourth more than the required volume, add the elixir, tincture, spirit, and oil of bitter almond, previously mixed; shake well, and add distilled water, if necessary, to produce the required volume.
