What is wassail?
A traditional wassail recipe typically includes alcohol, cider, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. According to WhyChristmas.com, “the word wassail comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means good health.” People would make this drink around Christmas and New Years to celebrate. Pretty cool!
This wassail drink is perfect as Dragonfire Potion!
It is the perfect orange color and is served hot from the stove!
It won’t destroy any minions, but it sure does taste good!
How to make wassail?
- Combine all ingredients in a large stove pot.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 25 minutes.
- Adjust for desired level of sweetness if needed.
- Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
This fall when you are enjoying the cool weather, sensing the change of colors, and completing your Hearthstone quests, make sure to take a few moments and make this drink. Then continue to destroy your opponents while sipping on your very own dragonfire potion!

Dragon Fire Potion - Orange Wassail

- Taste and adjust to desired level of sweetness. I liked the drink as it was, but my husband wanted it sweeter. So it’s all preference. Add in ¼ cup white sugar, stir to dissolve and taste. Repeat until you get the sweetness level you desire!
