Place the Rind or Peeling into the Fizz glass.
2 or 3 lumps of Crystal Ice.
1 Wineglass of Remsen Scotch Whiskey.

In this country it is often the case that people call a Remsen Cooler where they want Old Tom Gin or Sloe Gin instead of Scotch Whiskey. It is therefore the bartender’s duty to mix as desired.
