    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Germans often serve a delicious Bowle at summer parties. There are many, many variations on a bowle, here is but one variation I found in a special summer issue of Kreativ Kuche magazine. I have translated this directly from the German. I recommend trying a German Riesling with this, but any white wine you prefer will do just as nicely. When serving Bowle, your German host usually will provide small picks along with your punch glass - the picks are for stabbing the wine soaked berries floating in your glass so you can eat them. The berries are, in my opinion, the best part! Plan to start this just a few hours before your guests arrive as this does not keep.

      Lemon balm is an herb in the mint family common in Europe; if unavailable then use a vegetable peeler to cut about 5-6 long narrow curls of lemon rind in place of the balm (remove before serving).

      This is a good recipe for something I remember my parents making on their anniversary each year.
