One tablespoonful sugar dissolved in a little hot water, one jigger Scotch whisky. Set the liquid on fire, and while blazing, pour three or four times from one mug into another; this will give the appearance of a stream of liquid fire; twist a piece of lemon peel on top, with a little grated nutmeg, and serve. As this preparation requires skill, it is quite requisite that the amateur should practice with cold water at first.
RHINE WINE AND SELTZER.
Fill star champagne-glass one-half full Rhine
wine, fill with syphon seltzer.
Put in tall punch-glass one large bar-spoonful syrup, one piece twisted lemon peel, three sprigs mint, fill glass with fine ice, one jigger whisky, one-half jigger water. Stir with long bar-spoon, but do not bruise the mint,as it will give sufi&cient flavor without; ornament with sprigs of mint and seasonable fruits.
