Feuerzangenbowle M (1) compr.

GABC young professionals and friends met in the last cold days of winter to enjoy an evening of delicious hot Feuerzangenbowle together. We bid the cold goodbye as we lit up the sugar cones and prepared this traditional German winter time drink. The plan was to then watch the classic corresponding movie “Feuerzangenbowle” but well, the many conversations between guests took priority and by 10PM we still hadn't finished the movie!
