Hot Wassail

Posted by Generation Girls at 9:25 AM

One of our favorite traditions each year is to spend a day or two in a small town here in Oregon walking through the quaint little shops in their down town. It's as close to an old fashion Christmas as we have found. Carolers sing in the square, the shops have boughs around all their store fronts and charming Christmas lights and music playing in the shops. One particular shop always has Wassail hot and ready for anyone walking by. It was here that I first had Wassail and fell in love with this hot holiday drink. Spending a snowy cold day window shopping with my family and enjoying the sights and sounds and wonderful smells of Christmas is a tradition we love.
