Eve's Wassail

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Friends of my parents, Eve is a fine Swedish woman and her husband is a fine Italian-Irish guy. Without fail they invited my parents (and me) over for Christmas treats each year, and this is Eve's recipe for her wonderful wassail. I haven't really kept in touch with Eve since my parents have passed; maybe it's time... Prep time includes "sitting time."

I doubled the recipe and only used half of the amount of spices called for. I also added 2 cups of pomegranate juice. Very good!
