WFMW: Drinking In The Holidays

Pin It Now!

In honor of this week's themed WFMW (holiday tip) I will post 3 of my favorite holiday drinks.

A winter holiday get together just isn't complete without some kind of hot drink simmering in a crock pot infiltrating a beautifully decorated home with an intoxicating, spicy aroma. Ahhhhhh.

I have been making Winter Wassil for over a decade every single winter. And we have to wait until December to make it!!! Harvest Apple Cider is for fall.

Winter Wassil
4 cups apple juice
2 cups cranberry juice
2 whole cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves (I use probably 3x that)
1 TBSP allspice
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Also something that is very fun for kids to drink is Christmas Cocoa! We look forward to this every year!! Really I do, too. I have already posted about this here with pics and everything!

Many years ago I received some Spice Tea in a jar from a friend. It smells delicious, tastes yummy, and is a great home made gift giving idea. It looks so pretty in a festive jar.

Spice Tea
1 1/2 c. Instant tea
3 1/2 c. sugar
2 c. Tang
1 1/2 c. lemonade
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. cloves

*Use 3-4 heaping teaspoons per cup of hot water.
