A Wassailing we will go!

Wassailing?  How does one “wassail?”  In areas west of Europe, wassailing refers to drinking and singing to the health of trees to help them thrive.  The house-visiting wassail is the practice of people going door-to-door, singing and offering a drink from the wassail bowl in exchange for gifts; this practice still exists, but has largely been displaced by caroling.

We have the pleasure of working with Sam and Di at Rocky Mountain Wassail.  They have a great wassail that you can find at Ouray Glassworks or locations across the country.  For the kids (and young at heart), wassail is a mulled cider that can be enjoyed at any time.  A warm mug of cider as you watch the leaves or snowfall will warm your toes and your heart.  Add a couple teaspoons to a cup of green or black tea made with steamed milk.  Adults will enjoy adding a few teaspoons to a hearty red wine and heating through.

While at Sweetheart Winery in Loveland, we ran into Yvonne and Nicole who were looking to purchase some Rocky Mountain Wassail and were kind enough to let us get a picture.  They love the wassail!

Join Sam and Di, Yvonne and Nicole in a warm cup of deliciousness and warm your heart!
