Wassail

Thursday, February 18, 2010

This is a great non-alcoholic party drink. You need a large percolator (30 cup) to make it or you can make it in a large, deep pot, tying the herbs in a cheesecloth. This makes 16 1/2 cups of Wassail.

What you'll need:

  • 1 quart apple cider
  • 1 pint cranberry juice
  • 1 c orange juice
  • 1/4 - 3/4 c lemon juice
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp whole cloves
  • 1 tsp (2 or 3 sticks) cinnamon sticks
In the bottom part of the perculator (or in a large, deep pot), combine cider, juices and sugar. The amount of lemon juice is up to your taste. Stir well. In the "coffee grounds basket" (or in a cheesecloth), place allspice, cloves & cinnamon sticks. Heat until perculating (or bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low) and allow to perculate (or simmer) for 10 - 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Cost:
apple cider – $2.85
cranberry juice – $1.49
orange juice – $2.99/gallon
lemons – $1.99/4
sugar - $2.42
cloves – $1.12
cinnamon – $1.85
Total = $11.00/$0.67 per cup
