Cocoa, 3 tablespoonfuls; sugar, 1/3 cup; boiling water, 3 tablespoonfuls; chilled milk, 6 cups; peppermint extract, 1/2 teaspoonful; 6 mint sprigs.

Blend cocoa and sugar together; add boiling water, and stir until smooth. Add milk and extract; beat until well blended. Chill. Pour into glasses and garnish with mint leaves. A great favorite with youngsters of all ages.

Summer Chocolate


Apollinaris is a brand of sparkling mineral water that's well-known in Europe as "The Queen of Table Waters." It has been naturally sourced from a spring in Bad Neuenahr, Germany since 1852.

Put into a tumbler about two tablespoonfuls of broken ice, two tablespoonfuls of chocolate syrup, three tablespoonfuls of whipped cream, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1/4 cup of soda water from a siphon bottle or Apollinaris water.

Stir well before drinking. A tablespoonful of vanilla ice cream is a desirable addition.

It is a delicious drink, even if the soda or Apollinaris water and ice cream be omitted. A plainer drink is made by combining the chocolate syrup, 3/4 cup of milk, and the ice, and shaking well. —Mrs. F. H. Coman
