Mmmmm.Â Just the mention of this drink makes me close my eyes and sigh.Â My sisters, my Mother and I drink this year round, anytime a chilly day brings forth the need to curl up with something hot and comforting.Â I love coffee, and a steaming cup of Constant Comment is my beverage of choice when feeling a bit sick.Â Â But frosty autumn and winter nights seem to call out for something special.Â Something that reminds you of the cider drinks of your childhood, but with a twist.Â This recipe fits the bill.Â Just the right balance of spice and tang, its great in the morning with toast or in the evening with a great movie…say…White Christmas!Â The mix makes a great gift so be sure to share some with a loved one.
