Wassailing

Dave and I hosted the inaugural neighborhood holiday party last night.  It was a hit.  Phew!  I'm glad the stress of it is gone.  
In true Waterfall fashion, I served up some hot wassail to our guests.  I'm not a big fan of it myself, but everyone else always seems to like it.  However, last night's was actually pretty good, if I say so myself.  I mean, it was really good.  
Here's the little-bit-of-this-and-that recipe.

2 bottles of apple cider (2x64 oz)
2 oranges, sliced
2 lemons, sliced
1/2 can orange concentrate
1/2 can lemonade concentrate
~2 cups water
6 cinnamon sticks
~1 T whole cloves

Combine all ingredients in stock pot.
Cook thoroughly until it's almost boiling.  
Turn down heat and simmer for several hours (4+ hrs).
Best served piping hot (in my opinion).

Enjoy!
