For temperance advocates, hot black coffee mixed with soda-water is a good substitute for the spirituous winter drinks.

The temperance movement started in the 1820s and would have been in full swing by the time Miss Corson’s Practical American Cookery was published in 1886. Most of the cookbooks I’ve seen from this era include alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with advice to the hostess that a variety of beverages be offered to guests with different preferences.
