Christmas Wassail

It's officially December.  There are so many reasons to love December.  The festivities, the friendliness, family and food.  In December we make food that we don't make the rest of the year special treats come out.  Have you ever had wassail?  There are many different recipes out there.  This recipe was so good it was served at my brother's December wedding.  This one has pineapple juice in it which really makes it special.  Hot, citrusy, and sweet I also use it to sooth the sore throats that come this time of year.

Christmas Wassail


3/4 cup sugar
6 whole cloves
2 sticks cinnamon
4 cups water divided
3 cups apple juice
2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice

Combine 2 cups of the water with the sugar and spices.  Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.  Let this stand for several hours to get all the great flavor from the cinnamon and cloves.  When ready to serve strain and combine with the juices and the rest of the water.  Heat and serve.

  1. This looks similar to the Lion House recipe that we love. I think we will have to make it tonight for FHE. Yum!

    And, what font do you use? Super cute.
