The holidays can be stressful! This month we Michaels Makers were asked to come up with creative and fun holiday hacks and tips to help relieve some of that stress and make holiday entertaining and prepping fun! We were given 5 common holiday hiccups to choose from and I went with neighbor gifts.
So I decided to share one of my favorite recipes – Tang tea – for a neighbor gift idea and free printable!
A long time ago my mom made up a recipe book of all of our favorite family recipes. And y favorite recipe book. One of my childhood recipes is Tang tea. I grew up in Michigan and I remember sitting on the heating vents in my parents family room with a cup of Tang tea. I loved the orange and cinnamon flavors and the warm feeling it gave me as I sipped.
And I thought it would be fun to make Tang tea gift baskets for my neighbors this year. And Michaels has the cutest PLAID baskets and accessories right now. I love plaid this holiday season!
Here is the super easy recipe:
1 – 12 ounce jar of TANG mix
2 cups sugar
1 3-ounce package of dry lemonade mix
1 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix it all up and store in a dry jar. To serve – mix 2 Tablespoons with one cup of hot water.
I love these glass drink jars with chalkboard looking sayings. And they come with the straws too! Just put them in a basket with the tea and your present is ready!
And these plaid mugs are swoon-worthy. I also love that they can be used all year – not just at Chrisitmas time.
The plaid basket is perfect with the mugs.
And here are the printables!
