    This recipe is very similar to the one my Dad used to make many years ago  -  23 Dec 2011


    I agree, add cardamon seed 1T. This is the greatest drink in the world on a cold, snowy night! The house will smell AMAZING!!!!! Put away the air freshener, put on a great holiday movie and snuggle into a big easy chair with your fluffiest jammies, slippers and blanket when you have a huge, warm cup of this stuff! Did I paint enough of a tempting pic for you? Good, now go make some, and tell the kids to eat the cookies you baked and stop bothering you for a glass of what you're having :-D LOL  -  02 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    With the addition of cardamom this is the exact recipe Mom & I made year in and out. Great memories now with every sip.  -  07 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
