YUM, YUM, YUM!!!! Stingo I cant write reviews as poetic as yours, but if I could this yummy brew would be the star of a poem! :) It is soooooooo tasty!!!! I used all organic juice and although it was a warm day in Spring, I LUVED this drink! It was warming, nicely spiced and just perfect in every way! I am so happy to have found this as I luved mulled wine, but cant have citrus fruits. This fits the bill perfectly. I will definitely make this again and again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your wonderful recipe with us, Stingo! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #22 May 2010.
I served this at a KENO party for Christmas, and it was a great hit with all the ladies who attended. My favorite part was that it wasn't as sweet as other wassail drinks I've had in the past. I will absolutely use this again! Thank you so much!
Other than using (as did LonghornMama!) "All Juice Cranberry Juice" instead of the cocktail, I followed the recipe &, as others have said, this is AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT TASTING HOLIDAY DRINK, will be making this several times more before the end of the year, & after that, as well!

If you are looking at this recipe you should immediately: 1. Save the recipe, 2. Rush to the store to buy the ingredients, 3. Make the recipe, and 4. Invite every friend you have in the world over to enjoy it with you! It's that good! Did I mention that I liked it???
Made this for Christmas Eve and really enjoyed it! Quick to fix and smells SO good. Loved that it wasn't as syrupy sweet as other wassail recipes. Used all juice cranberry juice instead of the cranberry juice cocktail which contains corn syrup. Great for any time the weather gets cool, and healthy enough to drink without guilt! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
