As soon as the scent of cinnamon and cloves wafts through the air and the blue flame licks the sugar loaf, you know that it's time for delicious Feuerzangenbowle again. Heat the red wine with spices, such as cinnamon and cloves, in a saucepan on the stove. Then pour the drink into the punch of the Feuerzangenbowle set and place the sugar loaf on the Feuerzangenbowl. Now the sugar loaf must be poured over with rum and then set on fire. When lighting, make sure to keep a safe distance. As a rule, the sugar loaf burns for about 20 minutes. The longer it burns, the more sugar and alcohol will drip into the mulled wine. The taste will be more intense if you give the Feuerzangenbowle time.

Optionally, you can also use a Feuerzangenbowle spice. Peel the zest from the lemon and orange and squeeze out the juice. The juice must then be poured through a sieve into the Feuerzangenbowle pot.

Place the sugar loaf over the pot on the fire tongs, pour rum on top and light it. Before the flame goes out, you should pour in the rum with a ladle. The longer the flame burns, the more alcohol and sugar drips into the fire tong punch.
