Special Tea

Margie: Edna, I've been thinking about my Special Tea recipe. It's been in the family for a long time but you and I don't have children so we need to pass it down to someone who will treasure it.

Read it and tell me who you think we should give it to.

Edna: Margie, I think it's safer if you keep that recipe under lock and key. You know that the church ladies have been dying to get that recipe for their annual fund raising cookbook, but they just can't hold their special tea. You don't want to be responsible for all of those God-fearing folk going on four-day benders, do you?

Margie: I suppose you're right, Edna. Let's go make some Special Tea, shall we?

2 cups sweet red wine
2 cups strong tea
2/3 cup rum
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup rye whiskey
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup gin
1/3 cup brandy
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 bottle dry champagne

Mix all ingredients except champagne. Cover and Refrigerate for several days. Stir in champagne just before serving. Makes 20 servings.
