Old English Wassail

This recipe for Old English Wassail is from my good friend Betty who made it for a November cooking club in 2008.  Everyone loved it and demanded the recipe for this wonderful fall drink. 

The Wassail has a delicious aroma from its apples, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and citrus. It is perfect to have simmering away when company arrives.  A bottle of dark or spiced rum served on the side also make it a nice cocktail.
This drink is not only easy to make, but it is also great because it can simmer until ready to serve creating a wonderful aroma throughout the house.  Keep it on the stove and have a ladle and mugs (and rum if serving) nearby so everyone can help themselves.

The Wassail makes a great Halloween/Thanksgiving drink (and cocktail), and is also comforting whenever the weather calls for a warm, inviting drink.  
Simmer - Sip - Smile
