One amazing thing my mom got out of her years as a member of our towns garden club with the recipe for Hot Wassail. The club members would take trips to visit each others gardens and on a cool day my mom was served this warm drink and fell in love. The hostess received this recipe from a trip she took in England and shared it with the garden club.
We hope you enjoy it as much as our Mom does and you don’t have to join a garden club to serve it. Or if you are in a garden club, maybe consider bringing it to your next meeting!
Now this drink shows up at all of our winter family gatherings.
The history of Hot Wassail has an interesting origin and is consumed during the Yuletide season. Read about it here!
