Reviews for Cider Wassail
"Great flavor! I put this in my slow cooker to keep it warm over the course of a few hours."
"I made this for Christmas morning. The aroma was wonderful in the house while it was simmering. It tasted primarily like hot mulled apple cider. It did not have the nice, light orange color as shown in the recipe, rather it was a darker brown. I'm not sure why is was too "apple" flavor-wise."
"I made this for Christmas day and it was delicious! I thought it could be a little sweeter so I put in 6 tablespoons of brown sugar instead of 2 and it was just right for us."
"We had this on Christmas morning and everyone loved it! I made way too much and have been enjoying it on my own... I'm going to be sad when I run out!"
"this was a pretty close match to the wassil I drank years ago at the Christmas tree farm we went to every year! I just added a bit more cloves and nutmeg."
