"Delightes for Ladies is a book of recipes and household hints for women, written by Sir Hugh Plat (perhaps best remembered for Floreas Paradise) and published in London in 1602. Its full title is Delightes for ladies: to adorn their persons, tables, closets, and distillatories with beauties, banquets, perfumes and waters. A successful book in its day, some of the recipes have survived to be in relatively common use even 400 years later, in particular the various mixed alcoholic beverages"--Wikipedia.
