This is wonderful! We served it for an informal open house and wish we'd made more. Made for OZ/NZ Swap, but we'll make it again just for holiday cheer.

Guess I love a lot of things, & wassail is one of them! Although it's primarily used as a winter holiday drink, I like it anytime, hot or cold, & this one is no exception! This recipe makes a great hop sipper for cold days, but it also is a great, aromatic cold drink! Definitely a keeper!
