Regency Traditions Video:Make Your Your Own Wassail Punch

Regency Christmas Traditons

 

Regency wassail was usually far more alcoholic than this, and wine based. But this recipe has a lot of the same feel with fruit and spices. 

 

 

 

 We are more the fruit juice and spice punch type people, so I’m not sure we’ll try this particular version, but I’d love to hear about it if any of you do!

  1. And to think, I always use apple juice or cider as the base of my wassail. I also mull the sugar and spices over night. Did I miss it, or did he not add sugar?

    1. Sorry, it said the first one didn’t go through, so I watched again, added the rest, and sent. I wasn’t trying to get extra credits! 😯

    Hmmm….mulled wine is more to my liking. I didn’t realize they made it with beer!

    I make this often but with cider not beer. Though perhaps whole apples might be a nice touch this year!

    I didn’t realize wassail was created during Victorian. I have read holiday JAFF where they drank wassail and was set during regency.

    I want to try this in my crock pot! It seems a lot like a recipe for a good mulled wine, but I love the idea of the fruits in it, those always make it SO much better. I was going to try a mulled wine this Christmas but now I am thinking I will make this! And see what people think of it before I tell them 🙂

    I’ve only had wassail once and it was non-alcoholic.

    I have never tasted this or anything like it. We don’t entertain on a large scale requiring a punch or a large amount of “doctored” drinks. I did send the recipe to my son-in-law who experiments with making alcoholic drinks.
