For drinking with special companions.
1½ tablespoons prepared cocoa
Scald milk. Mix cocoa, sugar and salt, dilute with one-half cup boiling water to make smooth paste, add remaining water, and boil five minutes; turn into scalded milk and beat two minutes, using egg-beater, when froth will form. Cut marshmallow into eighths, add to cocoa.
Perfect before movies, especially accompanied by an attractive radio writer.
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
Put syrup in a tall glass, add vanilla ice cream, and fill glass with soda water drawn from siphon. Stir thoroughly and serve.
Yet another wholesome drink for attractive radio writers.
Combine in a shaker 1 to 1½ ounces of chocolate syrup, 3 rounded teaspoons of malted milk, a small scoop of ice cream and 1 cup of milk. Shake thoroughly. Top with whipped cream. Serves one.
1 cup coffee grounds
Place coffee in strainer, place strainer in percolator, and place percolator on the range. Place on heat until coffee percolates in glass indicator. Serve at once with cut sugar and cream: place sugar and cream in cup before hot coffee. There will be a perceptible difference if cream is added last. If cream is not obtainable scalded milk may be substituted.
Serve with a Southern accent.
Express juice from lemons, add mint leaves, sugar and water and let stand thirty minutes. Pour over a large piece of ice and add ginger ale. Serve in small glasses.
Keep out of sigh of Scroogelike business managers.
1 egg, beaten
Beat the egg and sugar together; then beat in the milk and vanilla. Serve cold in tall glasses with a light sprinkling of nutmeg. Omit the vanilla if other flavoring is used. To make a lighter, fluffier eggnog, beat the yolk and white separately. Add the sugar, milk, and flavoring to the yolk and fold into the white. Serves one. For a "nip" of extra taste, add a tablespoon of brandy.
Good for organists/radio performers with bad colds (also fitting for invalids).
Cut tender lean beef into small cubes a quarter of an inch in diameter. In a large jar with a closely fitting lid steep the cubed beef in cold water for five or six hours. Use one pint of water to one pound of meat. At the end of this time, place the jar in a vessel of boiling water and keep just below the boiling point for twenty to thirty minutes. Do not allow the contents of the jar to boil. The tea is then strained and ready for use.
1¼ cups warm water
Combine water, corn syrup, lemon juice, mint extract and food coloring; chill until ready to serve. To serve, combine with ginger ale and ice. Serves 6.
