The Wonder of Wassail

We serve Wassail at our holiday parties and it seems to be quite the mystery. This festive holiday treat attracts as many questions as it does fans.

The original Wassail was a full-bodied cocktail made with beer, Madeira, port wine, apples & spices.
Rich and yummy indeed.

These days, with a house full of children ranging from fifteen to four years of age, we serve up a kid friendly, non-alcoholic version.

It is a healthy, tasty holiday treat for the entire family to enjoy.
It just smells like Christmas!

4 cups unsweetened apple juice
3 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
2 cups cranberry juice cocktail
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick
3 whole cloves
4 lemon slices
Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes.
Adjust the number of lemon slices to taste.

Grab a beatiful glass or mug and make as fun and festive as desired!
It tastes best hot so be careful with those little ones
