We have this just about every winter holiday we get together with DH's family. It's a favorite!

- Let mixture stand in warm place for at least 1 hour OR overnight.
- Add juice and cider. Bring to a boil and serve.
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!
