Non Alcoholic Ginger Wassail with ginger and fresh fruit is an easy, delicious mulled cider that is perfect served in a dutch oven or crock pot for a party!
I’ve come up with some deliciously tempting recipes that are incredibly easy, and perfect for a crowd- like Cranberry Crockpot Cider, Elderflower Mulled Cider, Traditional Gluehwein, even a cranberry moonshine – and today I am really excited to share a delicious recipe I tweaked a bit to taste just like the Ginger Gluehwein I shared– but in a non-alcoholic recipe!
This Non-Alcoholic Ginger Wassail is technically not a Gluehwein as it’s made with cider instead of wine- but it is every bit as flavorful as the adult versions!
This recipe is perfection at a party. It is so easy- dump the ingredients in a pot on the stove or in a crockpot, set to low, and let it simmer away during a party.
Just set out some cute glasses or mugs and a pretty ladle and your guests can serve themselves little cups of cheer!
The great thing about this recipe is you can always have booze set aside if you’re having a party with both adults and kids- let them add a tipple or two or spiced rum, vodka, or red wine to their own drinks so the big batch can stay non-alcoholic!
There is one step you wont want to skip – after a while in liquid, the orange pith can give off a bit of a bitter flavor. I remove my oranges from the pot after about an hour!
Also, I love the look of the spices floating all over the pot- but it isn’t the most practical for drinking. You can tie yours up in a small cheesecloth or tea bag and insert that in your wassail so the liquid is free from any spare floating spices!
