Tis the season to snuggle up on the couch with a good book and something warm and yummy to sip.

And while Rex is forgoing his usual tea and biscuits for milk and cookies (which were supposed to be for Santa)...

I'm here to share the recipe for my family's favorite CHRISTMAS TEA!

It's a sort of instant wassail- guaranteed to warm your spirits as well as your tummy.




1 1/2 cups Sugar

1/2 cup Instant Tea

2 cups Tang (or other orange powdered drink mix)

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Ground Cloves

1 small package lemonade mix


Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.

Makes enough to serve one large party of holiday revelers, or one very large dinosaur.

Add 2-3 spoonfuls of the mix to a mug of hot water, stir, and enjoy!


And speaking of enjoying...
