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
- 1Sliced 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.
- 2Pull 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.
- 3Cover and chill bowle pitcher 24 hours.
- 4Have a decorative bowl filled with ice that your bowle pitcher will sit in to keep cool.
- 5Nestle the bowle pitcher in the ice bed and pour in the chilled wine and the champagne.
- 6Stir gently with a ladle and serve.
