Russian Tea

This is an excellent cold weather drink and can be served as is for youngsters or add vodka for the adults. I got it from a friend about 35 years ago, do not know where she got it.

RUSSIAN TEA

1 Jar (1 lb 11 oz) Tang
1 Cup instant unflavored tea
1 3 0z package lemonade mix
1/2 cup sugar (to taste)
1 tsp cinnamon (to taste)
1 tsp ground cloves

Mix all together very well. Add 2 tsp of mix to boiling water. garnish, if desired, with whole cinnamon stick.

I LOVE Russian tea.
Mil gives me a container full every Christmas.

I'd never thought of adding vodka to it... but, I'm going to give it
a try tonight.

Thanks!

Norgeskog, thanks for the recipe! It brings back memories of being huddled around the wood stove after playing in the snow with my parents & brother! :D Like pdswife, I have never thought of adding vodka. Looks like I need to mix some up & give it a whirl!

Sounds like it would taste like a Long Island Iced Tea. Any similarity?
