I broke out the Christmas music...

I generally wait until Thanksgiving day. But I was making my mixture of wassail for the season and "needed" to have a cup. Well- I couldn't have a cup without turning on some Trans-Siberian Orchestra....

It's a family favorite (my family- not Steve's- he thinks it's disgusting).

Wassail mix
2 c powdered orange drink mix (tang)
1 3 oz pckg un-sweetened lemonade (kool-aid)
1 1/2 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
add 2 or 3 T of mix to a cup of hot water.

Did you know I hate wassail? It's right up there w/roast, eggs, and frosting. I still heart you, though.

I looked for 3 ounce pkg of unsweetened kool-aid - could it be.33? Just the regular small package? I didn't see any big packages of unsweetened.
