Christmas Wassail

Menus4Moms: Christmas wassail recipe

Christmas wassail is a holiday tradition in our house. We like to keep a pot of wassail on the stove or in the crockpot while we are decorating the tree or entertaining.

The Christmas wassail recipe below is one version that we have used but wassail has many variations. There is not a single specific recipe that I use for wassail — I tend to vary what I put into it from year to year and I rarely measure anything. Our most recent version omits the tea and cranberry juice but adds pineapple juice. The constants for us are apple cider, cloves, cinnamon, and orange juice. Sometimes I like to use brown sugar instead of white sugar. A recipe for the version pictured above would use tea, cranberry juice, lemon juice, and spices but not the orange juice and apple cider. Try experimenting to create your own favorite family recipe and let us know how yours turns out.
