Wassail (Middle English 'waes hael' - "be you heathy") refers both to 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".
