Episode 6 - Wassail Bowl

December 15, 2021

Today's episode will all about the Wassail Bowl - "Wassail is a hot, mulled punch often associated with Yuletide, often drunk from a 'wassail bowl'. The earliest versions were warmed mead into which roasted crab apples were dropped and burst to create a drink called 'lambswool' drunk on Lammas day, still known in Shakespeare's time".

I was not actually aware of a Wassail Bowl until I heard it mentioned on a Christmas Special between Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra where they discussed this and the traditions of this being from England - where I am from. There is a little clip attached where they discuss this. :)

Enjoy.
