Gramma used to do something like this with red wine during the holidays, but I never liked the after-taste of heavy red wines. When I moved out on my own I noticed that I really missed the smell of this simmering through the house though! So through some trial and error (and a completely content to be a guinea pig husband!) I finally came up with this. It's similar to a wassail I guess, but wasn't really based on one.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
One sip of this drink and you'll immediately feel like the holidays are here. Filled with cinnamon and orange flavor, this will be popular at any holiday party. It warms you up as you slowly sip and it makes your kitchen smell amazing while simmering.
Stir until sugar is completely dissolved into the mixture.
Finally, drop orange slices into the mixture and allow them to float freely.
Keep Crock Pot on warm setting all day. The smell through the house is amazing, and if it's cold out this is guaranteed to warm you through and through.
