I LOVE wassail at Christmas time. We make it with a bottle of red wine and some cider and it is amazing. The problem is that now that I have kids, I am not all that into drinking wine. My little alarm clocks go off without fail every morning at 6:15am so it really takes the fun out of having fun the night before! So every Christmas, I make a non-alcoholic hot cider recipe to go along with the alcoholic version, to… well… keep the headaches at a minimum and survive life as a mom.
My non-alcoholic recipe is okay, but I discovered this delicious looking recipe for pomegranate cider from Living Better Together that I just have to try this year! I definitely recommend checking it out, and if you don’t know what wassail is, it’s just a hot mulled cider (Yes, I make it every year and I still had to look it up). Historically it was just apple cider and sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, but apparently modern recipes start with a base of wine. Either way, it’s delicious!
