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. Combine liquids in coffee percolator.
  2. Place sugar and spices in brew basket.
  3. Perk as you would coffee.
  4. 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.
