DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, place water, apple juice concentrate, orange juice concentrate, apricot nectar, lemonade concentrate, and brown sugar.
  • Tie cloves in a small piece of cheesecloth and secure with kitchen twine and drop in the pot, leaving a piece of twine where you can fish it out or place them in a large tea ball (this prevents you from having to strain the wassail later).
  • Tie cinnamon sticks together with some kitchen twine, leaving some of the twine where you can fish it out.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 25-30 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove cloves and cinnamon from wassail.
  • Add wine to wassail, and stir gently.
  • Garnish with apple slices, if desired.
  • Keep warm and serve from pot or you may decide to serve from the warm setting on a crockpot.
