I'm so thankful I found this recipe again online. I made it a few years ago, but forgot what book it was in (I have hundreds). I thought it was great, and made more for gifts. It's easy to make, and keeps well. Very tasty, definitely something different than hot chocolate or coffee.

I tried this mix this year for the first time. It's a nice warming winter drink, and what a fun color! I do think that the strawberry flavor could be punched up a little, but don't think I would necessarily add more of the strawberry drink mix. I was thinking of adding a small amount of unsweetened Kool-Aid® powder in the strawberry flavor. Another thing that might help would be to add a little powdered vanilla to the mix. It's very good, really warming, but it just seems to me to need a little bit more flavor.
