Put half a pint of port wine, with four lumps of sugar, three cloves, and enough grated nutmeg to cover a shilling into a saucepan; warm it well, but do not suffer it to boil; pour it into a bowl or jug, and upon the warm wine decant a bottle of soda-water. You will have an effervescing and delicious negus by this means.
