Thinly peel the rind of half an orange, put it into a bowl, with a table-spoonful of crushed sugar, and macerate with the ladle for a minute; then add one large wine-glass of maraschino, half one of Cognac, half one of Curagoa. Mix well together, pour in two bottles of soda-water, and one of champagne, during which time work it up and down with the punch-ladle, and it is ready.
Half a pound of pure ice is a great improvement.
