"For the opening diink. I favor a bam

at the San Francisco ITcs Club, of which
I was a member wMle residing In that

"nil a bar mixing glass with Ice an-l'put
In three dashes of titters, one Jlqger of
dry sherry anil one Jigger of Vermouth.
Shake for an Instant and strain Into whis
ky glass with a stuffed olive.
"For an after-dinner cocktail the rain

"Put half the Julc- of a lemon In a har

one J'ggcr of gin. one pony of abricotlne.
cne Jigger of cream. the white of one

In long glass and Ilrz.
"The abricotlne gives a neat taste to
this drink. I like this way of mixing It.
although It differs somewhat from the
manner In which it Is generally prepared.
"Another nice drink U a ping-pong cock
tail. Various rrcthods of mixing It exist,
of course, but I like this method:
"Half Jigger of gin and half jigger of
creme Yvctte. one dash of lemon Juice.
Stir ami strain Into cocktail glass with a
cherry. Stir In fine Ice. of course.
"The best method of mixing the South

"Put three dashes of lemon Juice and a
bar spoon of sugar In a bar mixing gla.sK
with fine Ice. Add the white of one egg.
a Jigger of gin. a little cream. Shake and
strain on top of creme Yctte. Put Into
