Warm Winter Secret Swap

In December I participated in a "Warm Winter Secret Swap" hosted by Amanda
We sent each other a mug and ingredients for a hot drink.
What a perfect swap for this cold winter weather we have been having.
Nothing warms your bones like sitting in front of a blazing fire sipping a scrumptious hot beverage.

 This is what I received from Jenn B Not one but two mugs with "Friendship Tea" Yum, I love it!

Friendship Tea
1/2 cup instant tea mix
1 cup instant orange drink (Tang)
1 cup instant lemonade drink (Country Time)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 cup cinnamon imperials (Red Hots)

 In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and blend them well. I actually find that it's easier to put them in a gallon sized zip lock bag, seal it up and shake them to make sure everything is well incorporated.

 To serve:
 Stir 2-3 teaspoons of the mix in a mug of 1 cup of boiling water. You may have to adjust to taste.

Here is the package I sent, with "Cinna Mocha Hot Chocolate"
It was fun searching for the mug and putting the package together.

What is your favorite hot beverage?

How cute!!!
Hot chocolate is my favorite. I'm not much of a tea or coffee fan.
