Your New Favorite Christmas Drink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My friend introduced me to this wassail recipe nearly 10
years ago and it’s become a family favorite (thanks, Phil). I make it
throughout the autumn and winter, and everyone asks for the recipe. I’ve made
the addition of the sliced lemon and orange, and I love the subtle citrus
hints. The longer you let this recipe simmer, the better. And if you’re serving
adults, spiking with rum or bourbon is scrumptious! Or, you can set up a “spike
it yourself” bar and allow folks to add their alcohol of choice. I always serve
this wassail when having company over for the holidays. The taste (and smell) is
unbeatable and welcomes your guests as they walk through your front door! Enjoy, and Merry Christmas friends!
