I made this recipe for the Buzz Recipe Group selection. Made no changes to the recipe. I used Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice and it resulted in a nice burgundy red color. Everyone at our holiday get-together loved it. Even left a steaming cup for Santa :) Thanks for sharing your recipe, JP! Read More

Wassail is a tricky concoction. You want the right balance of sweet and sour soothing and spicy. In our search for the ideal wassail we tried this one tonight. But sadly it came up short. The mixture left a slightly bitter aftertaste. This wasn t bad... but it wasn t good enough. Our wassail search continues! Read More

Everyone loved it! I had a recipe that had been used in my family for 20 years or so; but I was looking for something different. I liked the allspice berries and the pineapple juice - something my old recipe did not have. Read More
