I was just browsing through one of my Grandmother's recipe books. This has to be circa 1950s! To wow your guests: add a peppermint or lemon drop to your ice tea while its brewing for a lovely flavor.
I suppose it would work, but am wondering if it leaves odd stuff floating? I would rather try the peppermint out on some hot chocolate, just in case. Of course, cinnamon candy sounds great, too.
