I'm re-posting one of my favorite warm drink recipes from last year. My daughters and I love to make jar mixes for friends, family, and ourselves, too. Some of my church cookbooks that I've collected have similar recipes called Russian tea, friendship tea, or spice tea--but around here we call it gone!
a pint jar, 1-2 boxes of red hots, a capful of Tang, the same amount of instant tea, preferably with lemon, and a special tool
Any recipe that involves the meat mallet is a keeper, I say.
This is so easy-peasy, that I'm almost embarrassed to have a how-to. Basically you just layer each ingredient in the jar. But the only little trick is to tamp down the powder in the jar between additions to make sure the layers do not mix.
Tamp, tamp, tamp
Now the Tang. Try to not make as big a mess as I did.
Tamp it down too.
Layer in the red hots.
Notice the health conscious message. Did that comfort anyone else besides me?
Then pretty it up and give it away with a tag that includes directions to add the contents of the jar with one gallon of hot water. Blessings!
