Some there ar e wlio prefer t o all others a flask of gi n into which, a dozen cloves have been inserted while others, younger i n ag e an d more fantastic i n tasfce, believe i n equal parts of gi n an d noyeau, or of sherry and Maraschino.

This may be bottled two days after the sugar has been added.
