This is a traditional winter and fall drink that is made by adding spices, including cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and orange peel to cider, and then warming it until it is almost boiling. Before you even begin drinking your mulled cider, the pure scent of it steeping on the stove is going to put a smile on everyone’s face.
The history of hot mulled cider bears remarkable similarities to the old pagan tradition called Wassailing. The word ‘wassail’ comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means ‘good health’. The wassail was a drink made of mulled ale, curdled cream, roasted apples, eggs, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and sugar.
It was served from huge, 10-gallon bowls, often made of silver or pewter. This originally came from a story about a young beautiful maiden presenting the drink to Prince Vortigen, saying the words “waes hael” in a toast. The term wassailing refers to the act of the bowl being carried into the room with great splendor, a traditional carol about wassailing and then the beverage was served.
