    I make this recipe for ALL cold weather, especially winter. It's the only hot drink I care for. The wassail batch recipe is great, and it's great alcohol free. I don't care for the liquor added in this recipe, although I know it's the proper additive. I use an orange flavored liqueur instead or sometimes a fruity rum.
