Sea Cider Wassail, $19

Cider may be the hot new thing, but it doesn’t get any more old-school than wassail, the hot mulled punch that literally knocked them on their ears back in the Middle Ages. The old and the new meet with Sea Cider’s version—all candied orange peel with spicy cinnamon and cloves. Find an apple tree and drink it underneath. It’ll ensure a good harvest next year—that’s a promise.
