Eastern Wassail Punch
Recipe for Eastern Wassail Punch
A refreshing punch is a good way to start a party. Wassail is a deeply rooted tradition in the Midwest and a popular regional staple throughout the cold-weather season. Wassailing apple trees is a tradition in England involving chanting to the trees to encourage a bountiful harvest. The mixologist’s recipe is an Asian variation on this traditional theme.
