Wassail Drink Mix


Wassail Drink Mix is a simple combination of ingredients you can add to hot cider to make a delicious and warming drink for the holidays.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon dried orange peel


Combine all ingredients and store in small airtight glass or plastic container. To use, stir a spoonful into a cup of hot apple juice or apple cider. You could also stir it into cranberry juice cocktail, tea, or red wine.
