Burnt Punch (German)

The Burnt Punch photo was taken when we lived in Germany. Our neighbors invited us over for a Christmas meal and had this, also. I’d forgotten what it was called, so looked under ‘burning sugar cone’ and this is what it said about it. It’s a German tradition, called Feverzaugenbowle (burnt punch). It contains wine, fruits and spices. The solid sugar cone is soaked in rum, then set afire, and it melts/drips into the metal punch bowl. 🙂 Another traditional German drink we were introduced to was the Rumtopf. This is a crock jar, that fruits are added to, layered, with rum. We had a lovely meal, that included actual reindeer meat, and boiled chestnuts. They lit the candles on their  Christmas tree, and we listened to classical music. I imagine we also played some card games, too, as that is what we did quite frequently. 🙂
