Dollywood’s Holiday Wassail

favorite_184One of my favorite memories of growing up was going to Dollywood¬†for their “Smoky Mountain Christmas” festival. Being that the festival is in the Smoky Mountains, and November/December…it was usually cold! I saw where one of the food stands sold “Holiday Wassail,” and I begged my mom for it. I was instantly hooked. They still sell that amazing drink to this day. I did some digging and found this copycat recipe for the Wassail. Oh yeah…if you haven’t ever been to Dollywood at Christmastime…make it a point to get there. You won’t regret it.
