Of course, since my girls have just finished battling a major cold, I have to start feeling crummy. All I wanted for the last few days was something my mom always made me when I felt crappy: Friendship Tea. I looked in the pantry and was extremely happy to find that I had everything I needed to make a double batch! Friendship Tea 1 cup Instant Tea 2 cups Tang (yup, the Astronaut’s drink) 2 pkgs of presweetened lemonade** (if unsweetened add 1 cup sugar) 1 tsp. cloves 1 tsp. ground cinnamon Mix Together ingredients and store in covered jar. Use 1 heaping tsp. or more (to taste) to 1 cup boiling water. **I prefer pink lemonade just because it’s prettier. Step 1: Dump in the two cups of Tang in a container big enough for 3-4 cups of dry ingredients. Step 2: Add your Instant Tea Step 3: Pour in your lemonade (pink if you prefer) Step 4: Add your cinnamon and cloves. Here’s a side view of my double batch of Friendship Tea – Pre-mix. I used a knife to do the mixing…seemed to work pretty well… See, it’s still pretty after it’s been mixed! Next I warm up some water in one of my favorite handmade mugs (of course) and add the Friendship Tea. Sip, Enjoy, and be Comforted.
