Wassail



I’m ♫.•*¨*•♫♪ In  ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♪♫ The  ♪♫•*¨*•.¸Mood¸ For ♪♫  Wassail




As we approach the winter season, I look forward to the cold evenings when I can snuggle up on the sofa with a warm cup of wassail. I generally prepare a very large amount so that my family can enjoy a cup as they leave in the mornings.




Drinking wassail during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season is one of our family traditions. It makes you feel so exhilarated and puts you in the mood to engage in conversation.

Do you have a favorite recipe that’s a family tradition or that you would like to share?

Ingredients:
  • 2 quarts 100 % apple juice, no sugar added
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice 
  • 1 (46 oz.) can pineapple juice 
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice 
  • 1/2 – 1 cup sugar (or to taste) 
  • 4 sticks whole cinnamon 
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves 
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole allspice berries 
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
Directions:
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large pot
  2. Simmer for at least an hour
  3. Garnish with lemon and orange slices
  4. Serve hot
