I love making this recipe during the holiday season. In mid October my family and I pick apples and we have an apple press made in the 1800's and we press our own apples to get apple cider and we use apple cider instead of apple juice and it is very delicious!! Read More

I really didn't like this. The spices were too intense. Read More

FABULOUS! I just put all the ingredients in my crock pot on high for 4 hours and let it sit on warm all day afterward. Great drink to keep coming back to especially at a holiday party in the winter! Read More

This was a HUGE hit at my work's Christmas Eve potluck! I used apple cider instead of apple juice and added slices of oranges and dried cranberries (which plumped up as it heated) for garnish and just kept it in a crock pot. Yummy! Read More

Much nicer hot drink than many ciders. Still it left many feeling thirsty and needing water. Most everyone liked it but no one asked for more.Recipe made too much for my party of 12. Read More

I added a few whole allspice berries and some nutmeg but didn't have whole cloves so I used ground instead. Rum complements this very well also. Read More

I had never had wassail but my husband grew up with it and was intent on finding a recipe that matched the one in his memory. Well we found it! All our friends were wowed by it. At our holiday party I saw many of them forego the adult beverages for this fruity drink reminiscent of childhood. Wonderful! Read More
