This is a batch recipe.


1 gallon of best quality apple cider
64 oz natural cranberry juice
2 oranges (each poked with 10 whole cloves to release the orange essence)
4 tsp cloves (whole)
4 tsp allspice (whole)
1.5 bottles Montanya Oro rum
15 cinnamon sticks
4 tsp Angostura bitters

Preparation: How to make a Montanya Wassail

  1. Combine the apple cider and cranberry juice in a large covered pot, and heat to boiling.
  2. While that's heating, slice the oranges (to be used as garnishes later)
  3. Once the juices are boiling, reduce heat to low, add the cloves, allspice, cinnamon sticks, Montanya Oro rum, and bitters and allow to mull—covered so not to release/evaporate the alcohol—for 2-3 hours.
  4. When done mulling, remove the cinnamon sticks from the mixture.
  5. Let cool for about 10 minutes, ladle into mugs, garnish each with a cinnamon stick and an orange slice, and serve.
