Sekanjabin is a period cordial of Middle Eastern origin, similiar to the Greek medicinal drink "oxymel". It is made with water, sugar, vinegar, and mint. The resulting syrup is diluted with water, 5-10 parts water to 1 part syrup, according to taste.

This is a good drink to bring to large camping events such as Pennsic. The syrup can be stored without refrigeration and then diluted on-site, providing 2-5 gallons/7-19 litres of drink for one standard bottle of syrup. It's portable, stores well, it's period, and tastes much better than Pennsic hose water.
