A very unusual, but very good and healthful hot drink is "Tang"
orange drink. Fill the thermos with boiling water and then add "Tang"
to taste. This also a grate cold preventative and can be used as a
cold buster it it is too late, by adding about 5 or 6 Hall's menthol
cough drops! Greg in Baltimore
When I was a kid, my mom used to pour Dr. Pepper in a saucepan
and warm it, then add a slice of lemon. What a treat! Dr. Pepper
is still my favorite soda pop!
Also, we used to take tomato soup in a thermos and sip it when it
was cold outside. Love your newsletters! Pat (in Nebraska)
In today's newsletter a reader requested hot drink recipes for her
husband to take in his thermos. Well this isn't a recipe but a
suggestion. I have recently discovered Mexican hot chocolate and it
is an under appreciated treasure. Where I live it is readily available
at the grocery store in several varieties. Unlike our usual hot
chocolate mixes, Mexican hot chocolate contains cocoa beans,
sugar, vanilla and cinnamon--nothing else. How healthy can you
get?! It is rich and delicious and easy to make--just crumble the
cakes into milk, heat and serve. If unavailable in her area, she could
try making her own Mexican hot chocolate from a recipe. Alice V
Here is a favorite hot drink for cold weather and it is so simple.
Heat V8 juice or Tomato juice. Add bouillon cubes or granules.
Use as much bouillon to your taste. Stir until the bouillon is
dissolved. Pour into thermos and enjoy. Sharon
This is for the lady who would like to add variety to her husband's
thermos. I use orange pekoe tea as a base, adding heated fruit juice
such as pomegranate or apple cider along with cinnamon or other
sweet spice. It really adds zing to the tea.....Charlotte
