Temperance Drinks

Orgeat Lemonade.
(Use large bar-glass.)
Take 1 table-spoonful of powdered white sugar
½ wine-glass of orgeat syrup.
The juice of half of a lemon.

Fill tbe tumbler one-third full of ice, and balance with water. Shake well, ornament with berries in season, and serve with straws.

Fine Lemonade for Parties.
(One gallon.)
Take the rind of eight lemons.
Juice of twelve lemons.
2 pounds of loaf-sugar.
1 gallon of boiling water.

Rub the rinds of the eight lemons on the sugar
until they have absorbed all the oil from them, and
put it with the remainder of the sugar into a jug ; add
the lemon juice (but no pips), and pour over the whole
the boiling water.

When the sugar is dissolved, strain the lemonade
through a piece of muslin, and, when cool, it will be
ready for use.

The lemonade will be much improved by having the
whites of four eggs beaten up with it. A larger or smaller quantity of this lemonade may be made by increasing or diminishing the quantity of the ingredients used.

Soda Nectar.
(Use large soda-glass.)
Take the juice of 1 lemon.
¾ tumbler full of water.
Powdered white sugar to taste.
2 or 3 small lumps of ice.
½ small tea-spoonful of carbonate of soda.

Strain the juice of the lemon, and add it to the water, with sufficient white sugar to sweeten the whole nicely, and stir up until cool. When well mixed, put in the soda, stir well, and drink while the mixture is in an effervescing state.

Nectar for Dog Days.
(Use a large goblet.)
Take 1 lemon ice.
1 bottle of plain soda.
Place the ice in the goblet, and pour upon it the soda-water. This makes a deliriously cool and refreshing drink.

Soda Cocktail.
(Use large soda-glass.)
Take 1 tea-spoonful of powdered white sugar.
2 dashes of Angostura bitters.
1 bottle of plain soda.
3 or 4 small lumps of ice.
Pour the soda-water upon the other ingredients, stir
well with a spoon, then remove the ice, and serve.
