Wassail Kit for Wine
Wassail (Middle English 'wæs hæl' - 'be you healthy') refers both to the salute 'Waes Hail' and to the drink of wassail, a hot mulled wine, or as mulled cider drunk as part of wassailing, an English ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year. Wassail began as a spiced wine that resembled Roman recipes that survived the Middle Ages. Recipes began to vary with English production of ale, mead, and cider.
Blended to pair with red wine or port, our Wassail for Wine mix bursts forth with orange peel, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and clovers. A festive way to spread holiday cheer, and a perfect gift for your hosts!
For a Gallon Brew: Fill a pot with 1 gallon of red wine or port. Fill spice bag with 1/3 cup of wassail spices. Add spices and ½ cup sugar, and simmer at low heat for 1-2 hours. Serve hot or chilled.
