Wassail refers both to the salute ‘Waes Hail’ and to the drink of wassail, a hot mulled cider drunk as part of wassailing, an English ritual intended to ensure a good apple harvest the following year.  Historically, the drink is a mulled cider, mulled beer, or mead, made with sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and topped with slices of toast . A group then sings:  “Old apple tree, old apple tree, we’ve come to wassail thee.”
