Feuerzangenbowle (Festive German Fire Punch) Recipe
Feuerzangenbowle is a long-standing, traditional German alcoholic drink to celebrate with during the holidays. It combines mulled wine, fire and a rum soaked sugar cone. Add in some spices and you'll have everything you need for a memorable holiday party!
What does Feuerzangenbowle mean?
Fire tongs punch.
How do you Pronounce Feuerzangenbowle?
How to Make:
A Feuerzangenbowle recipe is prepared in a bowl, it’s somewhat similar to a fondue set, which is over a small flame. The bowl is filled with heated dry red wine spiced with fall and winter baking spices: cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, allspice, citrus which is like making mulled wine.
The traditional serving of the sugar cone used a pair of tongs, but now it is a metal grate on top of the bowl to hold the Zuckerhut (sugar cone). The sugar is soaked with rum and set on fire, which in turn makes it melt and caramelize.
The rum should have at least 54% alcohol by volume and be at room temperature in order to burn best. More rum is poured on the cone all the sugar has melted and mixed with the wine.
Most rum in the US is bottled at 80 to 100 proof, or 40 to 50% alcohol by volume (mean you won’t get it to light). Look for rums bottled at 125 to 160 proof.
The punch is then served in mugs while the burner (or slow cooker) keeps the wine warm. For some Germans the ceremony is more important than the drink, and they celebrate the gathering of friends and family, which has Gemütlichkeit (cozy atmosphere).

The Ball Drop Cocktail
via ElleTalk's Website
2 ounce Master of Mixes White Peach Daiquiri/Margarita Mix
2 ounces Brut Champagne Well Chilled
1 ounce Strawberry Vodka
1/2 ounce Lemon Juice
Edible Gold Glitter optional
- Ice Sphere Maker/s
- Flavor Injector
In an ice sphere maker, add water until it's filled all the way, leaving room for it to expand when frozen. Freeze for 2-2.5 hours. Just until it's made a hard outer shell, but is not solid all the way through. This will depend on your freezer. Mine usually takes 2 hours to 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Remove the top of the ice sphere maker to expose the ice. Run the metal tip of the flavor injector under hot water for 10 seconds. Then carefully poke it through the top of the ice sphere. This may take a few tries depending on how thick you made your shell. Remove the water from the inside of the iceball with the flavor injector until it is empty. Add the ice ball back to the freezer to firm up for at least 20 minutes. I usually let it sit in the base of the ice sphere, but you can also add it to a container.
In the meantime, make the cocktail. Combine Master of Mixes White Peach Daiquiri/Margarita Mix, strawberry vodka, lemon juice, and edible gold glitter (if using) into a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake for 15 seconds and strain into a glass. Let sit in the fridge to chill until ready to serve with ice balls.
When ready to assemble, take the cocktail and stir in the chilled champagne. Add an ice ball to a coupe or whiskey glass with the hole side up. Using the flavor injector, fill the ice ball up with the cocktail by injecting it into the hole you created in the ice ball. Fill until the liquid line is right at the hole. Serve immediately and let guests crack the ice ball cocktail with a bar spoon or pour champagne over the top and watch it melt away!
