Wassail is a traditional warm Christmas drink enjoyed in many countries. This Cranberry Apple Cider is a spin on that with fruit juices warmed on the stove and spiced with cinnamon and clove. If you want to feel extra festive, add in some red wine. Cranberry Apple Cider is sure to keep you nice and warm on long, cold winter nights.
