Tangy and festive! I never know whether recipes are calling for 100% cranberry juice, which is very tart (and expensive), or a cranberry juice blend, which is sweeter (and cheaper). I used a bit of both. Which type you use will determine whether your wassail will need more water or the addition of sugar.
I made this for a small group breakfast and it was a hit. I made it the night before and served it cold.
The additional water is definitely necessary as this punch can be sweet. It made the house smell wonderful as I cooked it!
This beverage has a lovely tangy taste, and was enjoyed by our brunch bunch. I kept it warm in the slow cooker; we also drank it over ice and it was delicious.
