As you know by now, I am all about making my house smell amazing during the holidays and this Slow Cooker Holiday Wassail recipe is a beverage and has your home smelling like pure holiday bliss all at the same time!
The first time I had wassail I was not a fan at all! Looking back on it, I think the premade mix my aunt made just had too many spices and wasn’t sweet at all. A few years later I went to a woman’s group meeting for my church and the refreshment was a similar version of this. I fell in love instantly and knew I was giving my favorite hot chocolate drink a run for it’s money with this recipe!
It has the perfect balance of sweet and spiced. No flavor is too overwhelming and it completely tastes like the holidays.
The most wonderful thing about it is that it’s prepared in the slow cooker and lasts for a few days. How perfect would this be for all your holiday get-togethers?! You just add everything in and turn it on. It only takes a few hours and gets better over time. This could even be made the night before!
Everything can be purchased ahead of time and makes your house smell amazing as it warms up. A total added bonus as well!
