Reviews forHoliday Wassail Punch
"This is easy and tasty, especially if it is cold outside. If you are in a hurry, you can heat it in a pot on the stove instead of in the slow cooker. It also keeps for a few days, so if you have any left over, you can keep it and heat it up later. I wasn't sure where to find pineapple nectar when I first made it, but it is in the juice section. The brand I found is a Mexican brand called Jumex."
