This is a wonderful fruity mulled apple drink that will warm you inside and out. The recipe from my friend Betty B. who serves it every year at her annual Christmas party. It is one of my children's favorite Christmas traditions.
- 1 quart apple juice
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup sugar, to taste
- 1⁄4 cup red-hot candies
- 1 -2 cinnamon stick
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves
- Heat and stir until red hots are dissolved.
- Couldn't be easier! Happy Holidays!
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!
