Punch la Romaine (Roman Punch)

This was very popular and was served at the White House during Grant's presidency for public receptions and also on the Titanic in the first class dining room in place of the sorbet course.

12 Servings

1.5 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (appr. 10-11 lemons)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (appr. 2 oranges)
2 cups powdered sugar (granulated sugar pulverized in a blender of food processor)
rind of one orange, thinly sliced
10 egg whites
1 750-ml bottle of dark rum
1 750-ml bottle of dry champagne

Combine citrus juice, sugar, and orange rind in a bowl. Stir to dissolve sugar. Let sit for 24 hours. Strain.
