Wassail Spiked Punch
Wassail is made so many ways — no one has a right or wrong way in making this punch
Just give it a try, and have a good time
It truly is fun to make and smells so good
This is a very festive punch for the Holidays, that is for sure
4 cups Hot Tea
4 cups Cranberry Juice
4 to 6 cups 100% Apple Juice – no sugar added
2 cups Orange Juice
1 cup Pineapple Juice – optional
3/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Brown Sugar – more or less to taste – Regular sugar can be used instead if desired
Pinch of Ground Ginger
Pinch of Nutmeg
Tie the next 2 ingredients up in a cheesecloth so they are easy to remove
3 cinnamon sticks
12 whole cloves
Can slice an orange to float in Wassail after cooking is done — if desired — looks pretty also
Add any Alcohol you like — after cooking process is complete
Such as Rum, Brandy or Whiskey??? You get to decide!
I think I would not add the booze to the punch –
I would pour it in my cup and then add the punch to it –
That way everyone can decide for themselves which type of alcohol they would like if any at all.
That is assuming there is a variety of alcohol to choose from :o)
Put all of the ingredients into a large slow cooker — except for alcohol
Cover and cook on high for 1 hour or until punch begins to boil or you can cook on low all day
Can also be cooked in a large pot – on top of the stove – on low heat
While WASSAIL is cooking the Aromas are amazing !!!
When Wassail Punch is done cooking
Pour in your alcohol of preference — if any desired
then pour Wassail into Big Mugs with a heatproof ladle
Serve this punch hot or at least pretty warm !!!
