Beccah Posted December 10, 2012 Share Posted December 10, 2012 License to Chill We won't go till we get some! How cool is it that the practice of wassailing – dating back centuries through various traditions – is its own verb? We suppose it's classier than saying, "We're going singing and drinking!" Anyway you look at it, it's a portable party! And to keep the carolers warm all night long, here's a brew reminiscent of a classic mulled wine to keep holiday spirits bright…cabernet spiced with cardamom and clove is simmered with a festive fruit mixture (plum, peach, hollyberry and coconut.) then garnished with a sprig of holly. Sing to health and to happiness, now and in the New Year…may the warmth of love and the bounty of friendship be yours always. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ CABERNET ~ (WINE, BEER, HARD LIQUOR, ETC) ~ Intoxicant, used as an offering or appeasement for Gods, used in love spells, and celebratory spells.PLUM ~ Inspires & maintains love, protects dwelling against evil and intrusion.PEACH ~ Love.
