What is wassail?
Wassail is a beverage of hot mulled cider. I was traditionally drank as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual. This ritual was intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year.
What’s the difference between wassail and mulled cider?
Nothing. Wassail and mulled cider both refer to a a spiced juice drink.
You can buy Rodelle Wassail Mulled Spicing Blend – that can be added to wine, cider, and so much more. Like these cookies!
What does wassail taste like?
It’s a warm blend of spices like cinnamon, orange, nutmeg, vanilla, and clove. It makes your apple cider much more warmer – when it comes to flavors.
And it takes baked goodies, like these cookies outta this world!
How do you make Wassail Sugar Cookies?
You start by mixing together your melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Mix in your egg and vanilla.
Then you add your flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Mix it all together, until it’s totally incorporated.
