I halved the recipe, just the wonderful aroma that filled the house was worth the effort. Outstanding
This is an excellent holiday drink. The name is not important to me. I wanted to try it out just with my husband before a family party, so cut back the recipe, and made it with 2 apples. I quartered and micro-cooked the apples with about half of the sugar called for, and later added them to the wassail as in the recipe. I kept the other ingredients and proportions as stated. I'm sure this would be beautiful in a large punch bowl with whole apples, and am looking forward to serving it to my guests. Thank you, Lennie, for a wonderful recipe.
This drink is not true "wassail" which is made with ale and rum, but more accurately the Danish drink known as "Glogg". For best effect, don't cook the slivered almonds with the glogg, put them into the bottom of the cup, pouring the glogg over them.
