Recipes > Beverages > Alcoholic Beverages > Claret > Claret-Cup



  • 1 bottle of claret
  • 1 bottle of soda-water
  • about 1/2 pound of pounded ice
  • 4 tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of grated nutmeg
  • 1 liqueur-glass of Maraschino
  • sprig of green borage


Put all the ingredients into a silver cup, regulating the proportion of ice by the state of the weather: if very warm, a larger quantity would be necessary. Hand the cup round with a clean napkin passed through one of the handles, that the edge of the cup may be wiped after each guest has partaken of the contents thereof.

Seasonable in summer.
