Brandy Flip

I teaspoonful of sugar I fresh egg I jigger Martell brandy Yi glass cracked ice Shake well, strain, grate a little nutmeg on top, and serve.

Egg Flip Put a quart of ale in a tinned saucepanon the fire to boil; in the meantime beat up the yolks of four eggs, with the whites of two, adding four tablespoonfuls of brown sugar and a little nutmeg; pour on the aleby degrees, beating up so as to prevent the mixture from curdling; then pour back and forth repeatedly from vessel to vessel, raising the hand to as great a height as possible—which process produces the smoothness and frothing essential to the good quality of the flip. This is excellent for a cold, and from its fleecy appearance is sometimes designated "a yard of flannel."

Here^s to a long life and a merry one, A quick death and an easy one, A pretty girl and a true one, A cold bottle and another one.

THE MAN WE LOVE: He who thinks the most good, and speaks the least ill of his neighbors. [59]
