My Mom’s Wassail

5 qts. water
3 ½ C. sugar
3-5 sticks cinnamon
2 tsp. whole cloves
12oz. can orange juice concentrate
12 oz. can lemonade concentrate

Mix water, sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 min. Add orange juice and lemonade.

Reduce and leave on low heat for 1-2 hours or crockpot for 3-4 hours. Float orange slices studded with whole cloves for fun in serving bowl. This serves a lot, don’t need to double for most parties. If using later as leftovers, remove spices. Leaving them in the liquid for extended time gives a very strong flavor to the wassail.
