I really loved this drink and the fact it uses 3 types of fruit juice plus, of course, Red Hots! I have a cold and this made me feel better -- well at least mentally, LOL.
This wassail is absolutely addictive and delightful! My mom used to make wassail during the holidays, but her recipe called for a lot of red hots. So, I was really happy to find a recipe that used a lot less. This was my first time to make wassail myself, due to the fact that neither my husband nor my children like it. Fortunately for me, my new son-in-law loves it and he and I went through two recipes worth in two days! I must confess that I didn't have any cinnamon sticks and just used ground cinnamon AND I didn't see the water in the recipe and failed to add it. Oops! I also added some to a glass diet Sierra Mist - yummy!
