I received this recipe from my sister, who got it from a friend in Alaska. This warming drink makes a great Christmas gift. For friends at work, I bought some cute jars with lids. I placed some fabric on top and tied them with ribbon. —Donna Gish, Blue Springs, Missouri
"This makes enough punch for many parties," assures Carolyn Zimmerman of Fairbury, Illinois. Her convenient recipe creates a syrup you can refrigerate or freeze, then stir into four different refreshing thirst-quenchers.
We serve this refreshing tea daily on our U-pick organic blueberry farm and get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. You can strain the tea or leave in the tasty bits of blueberry.—Delores Green, Monticello, Florida
When the weather starts to turn cold, I like to add something warm and spicy to my tea, like ginger and cardamom. A big thermos of this is just the thing for a long afternoon of raking leaves. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
