    HeatherFeather's Note:

    May marks the beginning of Bowle season in Germany, and is heralded in with a holiday (May Day). During May, and throughout the summer, you will start to see Bowle served in the restaurants and at fairs. Bowle is a strong wine & fruit punch that comes in many varieties. Use the best quality wines you can afford (as long as you think they taste good is all that matters - not the price tag). In Germany, you can buy Bowle sets - decorative glass pitchers or punch bowls with small cups and picks (the picks are for spearing the fruit). Watch out - this punch packs a wallop - and the fruit is always the best part. Plan ahead - the sugared fruit needs to macerate overnight in the fridge. The serving size is really a guess.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 medium peaches, pitted
    • 4 -6 tablespoons sugar, to taste
    • 4 (750 ml) bottles qba riesling wine, chilled (very good quality)
    • 1 (750 ml) bottle sweet champagne (good quality) or 1 (750 ml) bottle sweet sparkling wine, chilled (good quality)


    1. 1
      Sliced peaches and drop into a pot of boiling water for a few seconds- just to blanch them so the skins will come off easily, not to cook them.
    2. 2
      Pull off the skins and set them in the bottom of your bowle pitcher in a layers, sprinkling with sugar for each layer (one peach per layer)-amount is to taste, but probably 1 rounded Tbsp per peach is a good guess.
    3. 3
      Cover and chill bowle pitcher 24 hours.
    4. 4
      Have a decorative bowl filled with ice that your bowle pitcher will sit in to keep cool.
    5. 5
      Nestle the bowle pitcher in the ice bed and pour in the chilled wine and the champagne.
    6. 6
      Stir gently with a ladle and serve.

      Made this punch for a girls' night in and it's wonderful stuff! I don't really know what the peaches and sugar do, but you'd never know you're drinking all wine; the punch has a very mellow taste yet is obviously exactly as potent as the wine! I used semi-dry Black Tower for the Riesling and Italian Asti Gancia sparkling wine. Neither are my absolute favourites but I couldn't find what I originally wanted. And still, this made for such delicious punch! Can't wait to try it with my favourite wines, and can't wait to try the strawberry version (#34268). Thank you, HeatherFeather!

      made this for Thanksgiving. everyone loved it, even the guys who "don't drink girly drinks" liked it. i did use frozen peaches just to make it easier and it kept it nice and cold. thanks for an easy and nice punch recipe!
