3624.—SARATOGA.

Ingredients.—¼ of a pint of sherry, 1 teaspoonful of orange-juice, 1 teaspoonful of fine white sugar, crushed ice.

Method.—Beat the egg well, add the sugar, sherry, and a little crushed ice, shake well until sufficiently cooled, then strain into a small glass, and serve.

Note.—Port wine or any spirit may replace the sherry, and the liquor used would, of course, give its name to the "flip."
