Dan made me a warm winter drink the other night, and it was so good I just had to share it. I call it boozy wassail.
It truly tastes like winter in a cup. I can’t think of anything cozier than curling up with a cup of winter wassail in my comfy chair, covering myself with a knit throw, and reading a favorite book.
1 part Winter Wassail (from Trader Joe’s)
1 part red wine (go cheap on this – ours is three buck chuck from trader Joe’s as well)
a lemon wedge (juiced into the drink)
Optional – orange wedge, cinnamon sticks
Put everything in a pot and heat until warm, being careful not to let the liquid boil. Let simmer for at least 10 minutes to really let the flavors mix together. Serve immediately, piping hot.
Dan has also made this drink using honey whiskey as a replacement for the red wine. Both ways are great.
Hurry if you want to try our wassail. It’s a seasonal item from Trader Joe’s, so it won’t be in stores much longer.
Hope this helps keep you warm this winter!
