Terrific wassail! I wanted one that didn't use pineapple juice, and this was what I settled on. I put everything in the crockpot with some lemon slices floating on top and heated it for a few hours this morning, and it was slurped right up by my family. The trouble with some wassails is that they are just too flipping spicy. This one was nicely spiced but did not blow our heads off. A definite keeper. Thanks.
This was a trial run for me, since I'm always looking for new things to make during the up-coming winter holidays! So, I cut the recipe down to half & had it available for company we had the other day ~ Much enjoy by all of us, sort of like a pre-holiday comfort drink! Thanks for sharing it!
