Now that the cooler weather is approaching, I really enjoy a warm drink in place of my usual glass of iced tea. Below are a couple of recipes I use in the fall and winter. They are wonderful when you have a get together with your family and friends. I really like them when I'm not feeling well.
This recipe can be made up and stored in a air tight container for the whole fall and winter season...if it lasts that long.
Instant Spiced Tea
3/4 cup instant tea with lemon
2 cups Tang
1 package sweetened lemonade KoolAid
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 3/4 cup sugar
Mix together and store in air tight container. To serve, use 2 teaspoons mix for each cup of hot water. If you want it stronger, increase to taste. Serve with a slice of orange or a cinnamon stick.
Instant Hot Chocolate
6 oz. jar powdered cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar or 2 teaspoons Sweet N Low
8 quarts size powdered milk
2 lb. box chocolate drink mix such as Nestle Quik
Mix together and store in air tight container. Use 1/3 cup mix to one cup boiling water. Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows.
