Hot Lemonade

(Use a large bar glass.)

Fill up the glass with hot water; stir up with a spoon, and serve.

It is always necessary to pour a little hot water into the glass at first and stir a little, to prevent the glass from cracking, and also place a little fine ice in a separate glass in case the drink should be too hot.
