Today I'm going to share a favorite Christmas recipe. It's a great holiday drink that is somewhat similar to wassail, but not as heavy tasting. One cup of this will put you in the Christmas spirit lickety-split! And if you don't believe me, just ask Santa:
Heat together 3 cups sugar and 4 cups water.
1 12 oz. frozen orange juice undiluted
1 1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon almond extract flavoring
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 quarts water
Heat all until hot, but DO NOT boil (boiling will change the taste).
