Required : Two bottles of soda-water. One bottle of claret. One bottle of lemonade. One wineglassful of sherry. About fourteen lumps of sugar. A little nutmeg. The rind and juice of a lemon. A sprig of borage.
A leaf of verbena or scented geranium. Some ice.
Mix together in a glass jug the lemonade, soda-water, claret, and sherry. Then add the sugar, nutmeg, and the very thinly pared rind of the lemon. Cover the jug and place it on ice. About half an hour before serving put in the jug the borage, verbena leaf, and some ice chipped into small pieces. If liked, when serving it a strawberry may be placed in each glass. This has a very pretty effect.
Cost, about 2s.
