Crusta is made the same way as a Fancy Cocktail, with a little hmon juice and a small lump of ice added. First mix the ingredients in a small tumbler, then take a fancy red wine glass, put a sliced lemon round the rim of the glass, and dip it in powdered white sugar, so that the sugar will adhere to the edge of the glass; pare half a lemon, the same as you would an apple (all in one piece), so that the paring will fit i.no the wine glass, and strain Crusta from the tumblei into it. 88 WHISKEY GRUSTA. Use small tumbler. The Whiskey Crusta is made the same as the Brandy Crusta, using whiskey instead of brandy. 89 GIN CRUSTA. Use small tumbler. Gin Crusta is made the same as Brandy Crusta, using gin instead of brandy. MULLS AND SANGAREES. 90 MULLED WINE.

With a switch let the whites be beaten about. Until like the froth of the sea they come out; To the yolks then attend, and beat them also, And at them three spoonfuls of sugar just throw. Now into a skillet it's quite time to pour Of some recognised brand a bottle or more; And if of your head you may have any fear, Add one pint of water, and mind it is clear. The water and wine must be kept on the fire Till they reach the boiling heat you require; Then the yolks and the whites please beat as before, A half pint of water o'er them gently pour. Mix all well together until they combine, And then turn them into the skillet of wine; Stir about briskly and pour in a pitcher, Add grated nutmeg, 'twill make it much richer. Drink it off hot, and I'll bet any odds...
