Hot Tang Drink Mix Recipe
Hot tang! (Or Russian Tea!) This time of year, a warm drink is a happy addition to any morning. My husband does not drink coffee and doesn’t love hot chocolate so this drink mix recipe is his hot drink of choice. His mom has been making it for years and it’s a highlight to his fall. This citrus tang hot drink brings a bit of summer to the cold mornings. It’s such an easy recipe!
Combine all the ingredients in one large jar. I used the half gallon size of ball jars.
Give it a good mix after adding all the ingredients. Just put the lid on the jar tightly and shake!
Add a couple of tablespoons to your 8 oz mug and mix with hot water.
This would also make a great DIY gift for anyone this time of year who doesn’t love coffee. You can make quite a bit of it and add it to an airtight container and store for months. Enjoy!Print
