Some sprigs of green balm, and of borage, a small piece of rind of cucumber. Stir this together, and sweeten with capillaire or pounded sugar, until it ferments; let it stand one hour, strain it, and ice it well; it is then fit for use. Serve in small glasses.
The same for champagne cup: champagne instead of claret; noyau instead of ratafia.
This quantity is for an evening party of twenty persons. For a smaller number reduce the proportions.
