Yes. Carrying around Apple Cider in your nalgene is totally acceptable.
mmmm smells amazing!
Only the very best wassail is spiked!
The Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown did a Candle Light Evening every year around Christmas, it was always so much fun to wander around with your high school buddies in the freezing cold and see everything. However the very best part might have been the huge cauldron of wassail (spiced cider) over the fire. This mulled cider was good but there's something about being freezing, not being able to feel your fingers and probably being all snotty that makes it taste so much better (oh yeah, and being with your best buds!)
We also saw a bunch of horseshoe crabs.
