Aunt Cindy's Wassail

Here it is, the wonderful wassail that Aunt Cindy used to make for Ange and I. I love making it on Halloween and Christmas!

1 gallon apple juice
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 sticks cinnamon
10 cloves
10 allspice
1 cup sugar (optional)
2-4 cups water (optional, but I wouldn't add much if you don't use the sugar)

Simmer 25-30 min. Serve warm or chilled.

NOTES: I don't like to add sugar, so I don't add the water either. If it is too tart, a little water helps. I know some like sweeter drinks, so the sugar/water helps with that. It also helps the wassail go further!

HI! Now I have a blog page, I have a couple of recipes that I could add. I don't know how to do it so you'll have to tell me. Thanks!
