Winter Wassail

This holiday drink likely isn't on the shelves at Trader Joe's anymore since it's now summer, but we only opened it recently, well after the holidays.

Product: Winter Wassail

Price: $3.99 for 64 oz

Quick review: This drink definitely makes you think of the holidays, as it's filled with traditional holiday spices like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, and orange peel. It combines black currant, apple, and lemon juices, so it's a little different from other holiday drinks that are based solely on apple cider. The black currant in particular added a bit of a unique flavor that we really liked. It is pretty sweet though.

Buy again? Maybe, if we're looking for a holiday treat next holiday season. It had a nice, sweet flavor (although a little too sweet to be a constant purchase), and maybe next time, we'll actually drink it in the winter and can try it warmed.
