This delicious hot wassail combines apple cider, pineapple juice and orange juice with a great cinnamon undertone for a perfect holiday drink! It can be made on the stove or in a slow cooker!
I love hot drinks, warm apple cider, a big cup of hot cocoa, or this hot wassail. This hot wassail is the perfect addition to any winter day or holiday party!
This wassail is so easy to make and it can be made on the stove top or in a slow cooker. You just need all your ingredients to heat up together nicely, you can decide if you want it done in 30 minutes or a couple hours. The slow cooker is a great way to keep the wassail nice and warm throughout a party or whatever you might be serving it at too.
For this wassail you’ll need apple cider (100% juice), pineapple juice and orange juice. (You’ll want those to be 100% juice too)The citrussy juices combine nicely with the sweet apple juice and your spices to make a delicious fall or wintery drink. Along with your fruit juices, you’ll add some whole cinnamon sticks and some ground up cloves. Also a dash of lemon juice and 2 TBS of sugar or Splenda ® No Calorie Sweetner, Granulated to keep it nice and sweet.
I used SPLENDA® Sweetener Products to keep the recipe free of added sugars, though the juices have plenty of their own natural sugars. The Splenda helps cut the calories back just a little bit too.
This is the perfect drink for your upcoming Christmas party, or to come home to after a snowy walk or sledding at the park. Its so warm and delicious, I think you’ll love it just as much as I do!
