A while ago, I shared my recipe for wassail. While I love the taste of this delicious warm drink, I don’t often prepare a big batch of wassail. When I was getting ready for school the other morning, I wanted a glass of wassail – and decided to adjust the recipe for an individual cup of wassail.
It’s very simple and retains the full flavor of wassail – without lots of leftovers. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner! Sometimes, I simmer two servings on the stove and pour it into two mugs for two days. Other times, I mix it all together quickly in the microwave and drink my wassail on the go. I like having the flexibility now for a big batch or single serving of wassail. It has made my winter quite cozy!

Here’s how I prepare a single serving of wassail. I’ve gotten to where I squirt in a bit of lemon juice and sprinkle on the cinnamon – without measuring. I have included measurements for your convenience. Feel free to adjust if you want more or less sweetness with the sugar and lemon juice proportions. Enjoy a glass of wassail today!
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix apple juice, orange juice and a squirt of lemon juice in a mug. Stir in 2 teaspoons of sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Heat in the microwave for a minute and a half or until warm. Stir again before drinking.
