Thank you for this post, so full of informational goodness.  I have
some of the Sadaf syrup, which I bought when I was playing around with
(non-period) cordials.  I didn't know that there was a period
non-alcoholic drink based on those flavors.  I'll bear that in mind,
the next time I'm doing a feast or dayboard.
