Old Virginia Wassail Cider
A quick and delicious hot cider drink that's great for cold-weather entertaining. This old-fashioned wassail recipe is always a big hit with young and old! Cloves can be placed into cheesecloth or a teabag infuser for easy removal if desired. A cinnamon stick in each cup makes a nice garnish.
Easy-Peasy Gluhwein (Hot German Spiced Wine/aka "Mulled Cider")
This is the super-easy version of Gluhwein. Don't waste space in the pot with fruit. The spices and heat will add a whole new level to the sangria! This is always a big hit at my Christmas parties! You can use 1 whole orange peel in place of the whole lemon peel, if desired.
