|Hot mulled cider|
Here We Go A' Wassailing is a song which references wassail, a traditional holiday beverage featuring mulling spices.
Mulling spices are wonderful to have on hand for those winter evenings when the family gathers around the fire. Mix 2 cups dried orange peel, 2 cups broken cinnamon sticks, 1-cup whole allspice berries, 1-cup whole cloves, and 4 broken star anise. Store the mixture in a closed jar.
To use: Mix ¼ cup of the spices per gallon of wine, cider, or apple juice. Simmer for 30 minutes. Serve hot in mugs with cinnamon stick stir-sticks, or fill a punch bowl and garnish with orange slices. The zesty aroma is a charming additional benefit.
