Cooking Thursday

Today's recipe is a good one for Christmas parties!  I got this from my sister's Mother-in-law who has been making it for years.  It's a hot wassail drink that smells as good as it tastes.  I made it again for a party this weekend, and it's always good, especially on a cold day. This picture is not mine, it's from the internet because I forgot to take any pictures, but it looks the same.

Hot Wassail
 Pour into percolater:
2-64 ounce Apple juice
1 quart orange juice
In coffee basket with filter place:
1 cup brown sugar
2 sticks cinnamon
2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons whole allspice
1 dash nutmeg
Run through percolator and enjoy!

Love it! Wassail is so yummy this time of year! xoxo

Jenny said...

OK I don't have a percolotor so I'm wondering how I can do this. Crockpot? I'll figure it out. The family will love it. As always, thanks, Mari! xoxo

And to catch up, I perused your home's holiday decor. I love the mini-nativity on the scales most. That is so sweet, darling, and very inspiring these days.

Linda said...

Yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Mari. Have a lovely day friend.

Arlene @Nanaland said... you use one of those big coffee urn percolators for this punch?

Beth Cotell said...

Yum! Sounds perfect for a chilly winter day!

Love this. I make a similar recipe and drink it the year round now that I cant drink tastes good and smell just as good when cooking!

Patsy said...

So good and love the smell.

This sounds SO good!! It's going to be COLD here in Florida tomorrow...down into the high 50s.

My goodness!! I didn't realize you're back and blogging again. I've got catching up to do here.

I can just imagine how this might taste. When Miki used to be able to come home for Christmas she would make Wassail juice. She had some Swedish name for it - like Glugg, or something like that I think. It was very spicy and so very good.

Actually, I just looked it up. Glogg. With two dots over the o, of course!

I make something like this at Christmas. Mine is made with cider and orange juice. It probably tastes the same.
