A Single Serving Recipe for Wassail

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!

Ingredients:

1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

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.

  1. I am going to make so much of this wassail this winter. I used to be in a medieval reenactment group and wassail was a staple at all the winter feasts. But brewing a huge batch is an ordeal, and nobody I know these days likes it! I think I’ll add a pinch of nutmeg or allspice and ginger to make it a little more familiar to what I knew. Authentic British wassail can vary quite a lot from region to region, even household to household. It’s a wonderfully versatile comfort drink. Thanks for posting this! I can’t wait to start experimenting with it.

    1. It’s nice to meet someone else who appreciates a good glass of wassail! I had heard that it varies quite a bit, so that’s good to know. And I agree that it is a wonderful comfort drink. Enjoy experimenting!
