Christmas Wassail with Pomegranate Juice

Christmas Wassail with Pomegranate Juice

Christmas Wassail with Pomegranate Juice is a delicious mulled drink to enjoy during the holiday season. Sweetened with pomegranate, apple, and pineapple juice and flavored with cinnamon sticks, it’s good served hot or over ice.

Once it has mulled for the desired time, you may keep it warm in a slow cooker or simmer in a carafe over a low fire.

Fresh Pomegranates

Pomegranate juice used to be hard to find, but is now readily available at Walmart or your local grocery store. I like to buy 100% pomegranate juice, but you might try a combination of cranberry-pomegranate or blueberry-pomegranate juice.

I’ve given the option to add as little or as much water to the drink as desired, up to a quart. This will help if you are serving a large crowd and need it to go a bit farther. Or you may simply desire a lighter drink that is not as strong. In the end, it’s all good.

Christmas Wassail is the perfect beverage to serve when you’re looking for a non-alcoholic drink for your guests. It’s also nice for a holiday brunch or tea party.

Irish Coffee Mugs for Mulled Drinks

This drink is especially pretty served in glass mugs, such as Princess House Fantasia mugs, or in Irish coffee mugs.

 

Ingredients for Christmas Wassail with Pomegranate Juice

  • pomegranate juice
  • apple juice
  • pineapple juice
  • frozen lemonade concentrate
  • cinnamon sticks
  • water

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

To begin, gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

In a large saucepan, combine pomegranate, apple, and pineapple juices.

Using a long-handled wooden spoon, stir in the frozen lemonade and cinnamon sticks. Bring the juices to a boil.

Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for one hour. Add water, up to a quart, as desired.

Serve in pretty coffee mugs either hot or cold over ice. This recipe makes about 4 quarts.
