Recipe by Sheynath

A delicious beverage based on a drink described in the "Dragonriders of Pern" books by Anne McCaffrey. This recipe makes a large single serving. I mix the dry ingredients and take baggies of it to work to leave in my desk for whenever I need a pick-me-up.

Top Tweak by Blair

Instead of using instant coffee, I like to mix the cocoa and spice blend into brewed coffee. It's richer, and I find it's easier to tweak if you want it stronger or not. But I love your spice blend!
