They treat their company with coffee, tea, lemonade, orgeat and cake.
A joker kept crying from time to time: "orgeat, lemonade, beer."
Blan was in the act of handing a glass of orgeat to his wife.
The orgeat does not ferment and the thick liquid may be diluted in water, half an inch for a whole tumbler of iced water.
It is made of equal portions of barley-water and orgeat of Chufas, and is highly iced.
The trays on which were glasses of orgeat and glasses of syrup and water appeared only at long intervals.
Then add the orgeat, and whip the mixture well with a whisk, so as to whiten it.
It proves to be crowded with people in fancy attire, who have laid aside their masks to indulge in beer, orgeat, and sherbet.
The same joker kept on yelping in a shrill tone that rose above the murmur of conversation, "orgeat, lemonade, beer."
