Wassail is a delicious and warming beverage that has traditionally been used in Christmas festivities. This is a unique recipe because it's made in the coffee pot! I got it from my aunt.
- 1 quart apple cider
- 1 pint cranberry juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 3⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon whole allspice
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- Combine liquids in coffee percolator.
- Place sugar and spices in brew basket.
- Perk as you would coffee.
- Serve hot.
This is excellent. I decreased amounts to make only 4 servings, & enjoyed while I was decorating my Christmas tree. I had to substitute regular apple juice, b/c I was out of cider, so I added a little more spice to make up for that. It was excellent, & even better WITH actual cider, I'm sure. *Hint: Run a pot of plain water thru your coffeepot after making this before you make coffee again. :) Thanks!
This recipe is unique and easy becuase of use of the coffee pot. It worked slick and everyone at our Christmas party who wanted a warm, non-alcoholic drink liked it!
Exactly what I was looking for. I've been nominated to be the wassail maker for our church choir. This recipe tasted great, and the use of the coffee pot is exactly what I needed. I started with 1 gal of apple cider and adjusted the rest of the quantities. And the use of 1/2 of a fifth of spiced rum was a wonderful addition.
