Before our Christmas party I did a long hard search for the perfect wassail recipe. Well, I’m not sure I came up with the best, but I did find a delicious recipe for Christmas wassail.* I served it to our party guests, I served it to my family, I served it to dinner guests, and I watched as every drop was drained from the pot each time.
Since then this wonderful wassail has become my drink of the winter. I make a new pot every week, store it back in the cider jug in our fridge, and heat up a mug or two for myself each day. It’s a satisfying, spicy drink that I can tote around our house throughout these chilly winter days, sipping on it as I play with Lena or knit and read or work on a blog post.
Would you like to learn how to make it? Well then, I took some photos of the process just for you!
