A drink that contained mulled ale and curdled cream, roasted apple, eggs, ginger, nutmeg, ginger, and sugar was called the wassail.
It was served in huge 10-gallon-sized bowls made of silver and pewter. The idea for this drink came originally from a tale about a young, beautiful maiden who presented it to Prince Vortigen and said the words “waes Hael” as a toast. Wassailing is the act of carrying the bowl into the room in great splendor. Then the beverage was served.
