I made this for my family for the first time today, and my teenagers loved it after coming in from the snow.It is a wonderful beverage to warm up with! I have been making this since my college days, so long ago that I don't remember where I found the recipe. I have always loved the variety of ways to serve this. The recipe makes a very large amount, and can easily be halved. Cook time is the time it might take to stir it into your beverage of choice!
