Finding a Feuerzangenbowle in New York

vyieort Nov 12, 2008 07:30 AM

Hey Fellow Foodie Friends,

I'm on the hunt: The object of my desire is a German Feuerzangenbowle, which means "fire-tongs punch" in German. It seems much more difficult to track down than I would have suspected, and I'm hoping to surprise my mother with one at Thanksgiving, in preparation of our Christmas festivities.

Anyone have any advice on where to look? I've spent some considerable time, but any info is always appreciated.

Take care,
-adam

    In googling this drink, the recipe seems quite simple. Would you not just make your own?

      Hi,

      You're very right—making the drink isn't the problem; It's the traditional accouterments that are difficult to procure. There are ways to accommodate it without them, but my search is for the traditional equipment to add to the experience.

      Adam,
      This seems like an oddity! I think your best bet would be to go on ebay or online. Not many stores cater to German items here.

        You might try calling Schaller & Weber on the UES - if they don't have it, they might have some suggestions for you.

          I guess you are looking for the sugar cone. Here's a website where you can buy it.

            So, in case anyone was wondering what happened to this hot topic, I ended up purchasing one from the German Ebay site, www.ebay.de. You can check it out here: http://snipurl.com/7nay6.

            Happy Holidays!
