Use two glass mugs. In one dissolve a teaspoonful of powdered sugar with a wine-glass of boiling water. Pour in one wine-glass of Scotch whiskey. Ignite the liquid with fire, and while blazing mix the ingredients by pouring from one mug to the other, four or five times.

Serve piping hot in a small glass with a piece of twisted lemon peel.
