Wassail - a perfect drink to celebrate the New Year!!

The last two years, my brother-in-law has brought wassail to the holidays to share, and we have became hooked!!  We love warm drinks already in our family (hot chocolate, coffee, hot tea) and now we have another hot drink to add to the list.  

Love and joy come to you,

And to you your wassail, too,

And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Recipe for Wassail (we actually double this and fill the crockpot for our large crew!)
Apple Cider - 1/2 gallon
Orange Juice - 2 cups
Lemon Juice - 1/2 cup
Cloves - 1 teaspoon (or 12 cloves)
Cinnamon Sticks - 4 sticks
Ginger - pinch
Nutmeg - pinch

**Measure, mix and heat in the crockpot til warm (3-4 hours)

And now a cute video of the song and some lyrics for you!  Sing away!!!  :)  


**here's a little history on the carol as well**


  1. It is SUPER yummy! You gotta try it! It is addicting too.... makes me want to make another batch soon. Making it over the Christmas/New Years holidays is definitely not enough.
