1 lump sugardissolve well with a little hot water
Ingredient: sugarWhat it is: Additive
Many 19th century recipes specifically called for white sugar, which is more refined and preferred over browner sugars. But modern white sugar is probably too refined, making raw cane sugar the best, easily available choice.
1 wine-glass brandy(Use a hot water glass.)
Ingredient: brandyWhat it is: Brandy
Brandy (from brandywine, derived from Dutch brandewijn—"burnt wine") is a spirit produced by distilling wine, the wine having first been produced by fermenting grapes. Brandy generally contains 35%–60% alcohol by volume and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. While some brandies are aged in wooden casks, most are colored with caramel coloring to imitate the effect of such aging.
Fill up with hot water, stir up with a spoon, grate a little nutmeg on top and serve.
If the customer desires it, cut a slice of lemon into this drink.
