Sbiten (Spiced Honey Drink) created by Baby Kato

This groglike drink has been popular in Russia for centuries. It is usually prepared without alcohol but it is good with it, too. Just add 1/2 cup of vodka or brandy during the last few minutes of simmering. A Mark Bittman.

    Wow, susie cooks this recipe is awesome. I so enjoyed this quick and easy to make drink. It was perfection, this sweet and spicy, warming treat had a beautiful thick, velvety texture. I must confess that I made half a batch and drank it all myself over two days. I enjoyed it hot and also chilled with ice. I can't wait to try this with vodka over the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing.

    My this is good! Added vodka and served this chilled over ice as a prelude to a Russian/Eastern European buffet. Got everyone in the mood!!! Thanks, Susie.
