Hot Wassail from Our Best Bites

A few months ago I won a giveaway at Let Them Eat Cake.  A week later this fantastic cookbook arrived at my doorstep.  It's been a hectic few moths so I'm finally sitting down to try a few of the recipes.


Savoring the Seasons With Our Best Bites has 4 sections for 
4 seasons.  The recipes look fantastic!  I chose wassail because the hubs tells me his mom used to make it.  Side note: I know I call him "the hubs" that but it'll be OFFICIAL this Friday!!!

Hot Wassail
Ingredients:
4 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups pineapple juice
3 cups orange juice
3 cups lemonade

Directions
Combine water, sugar, cinnamon and cloves.  Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes and let sit for 1 hour.  This step can be done 3 days ahead of time.

Add pineapple juice, orange juice and lemonade.  
Heat and serve.

After reading the recipe I realized that it's nothing like what the hubs described but I'll make it anyway.  This recipe is much healthier!
