(Use a medium sized bar glass.)

In serving this drink, which is strictly temperance, it is proper for the bartender to half fill the glass with Selters, and the rest with milk; if it is done otherwise you will have nothing but foam in your glass, which would cause delay if a party has to be attended to.
