German Feuerzangenbowle Party Pictures

Throwing Down at the Feuerzangenbowle

The centerpiece of the party is the mulled wine, which is lit on fire when a zuckerhut (sugar cone) is drenched in Bacardi 151 and lit on fire.

We've never held a Feuerzangenbowle, but after seeing snapshots from Elka Karl's annual celebration, we're reconsidering next year's holiday party options.

We held our annual German (as if you couldn't tell from the word coming up next) Feuerzangenbowle holiday party this past weekend, and as usual the food was superb. My husband prepares most of the food every year, but this year we also had amazing contributions from our guests, who really upped the table game with their yummy homemade goods. Keep clicking to see some of the yumminess from this year's party.

For details on the food (pickled eggs! spring rolls!) and the drinks (aquavit!), keep clicking. Want to share plates from your holiday party? Be sure to upload them to our Super Special Occasion group.
