Misc Summer Punch Recipe Hits 4793 | Last Modified 2009-10-14
This is a traditional Shropshire Wassail drink that has been adapted for summer-time sipping. Basically we remove all the egg and cream from the thing, don't bother with the 10 baked apples and instead chill it and serve with ice. It's very refreshing in the sun! If you find it too bitter, then add more honey or sugar, likewise, if using sweet cider, then use less.
