I find that here in California, when I say”Beer Punch Recipe“, people look at me funny. In a world of craft and specialty beers, why would you mix in fruits and champagne? You know why? Because the flavor is out of this world delicious, and it’s quite refreshing on a warm day. A German Bowle, or German Punch Recipe, is a common site at many Summertime gatherings. It’s easy to make, and looks pretty too.
Raspberry Beer Punch Recipe
This recipe from Erdinger Fanclub for “Kühle Bowle für heiße Sommernächte” (Cool Punch for Summer Nights) was sent to me by Jennifer O’Bayley… who wanted me to share it with all of you. Try it. It’s a nice, not TOO sweet, drink for a warm day. It’s a great fruity Weißbiervariante (Weißbier variation), and a surprising addition to any party. (Can’t find Erdinger Weissbier? Substitute another Hefeweizen.)
Where to Buy Raspberry Syrup / Himbeersyrup
My Oma used to make it herself, but that’s more work than I like to do these days… You can buy bottles of the syrup from Amazon. I like adding a bit of it to water, for a less-sweet juice… or bubble water for a home made raspberry soda.
(Keep in mind, pancake syrup isn’t the same…but you CAN use this on pancakes)
Looking for more Bowle Recipes?
Of course, Amazon has some recipe books to order or download… they are in German.
How to Serve your Bowle
You can serve your raspberry beer punch recipe from a Punch Bowl or from a big Pitcher. Just be sure that every guest gets lots of fruit! Maybe even hand around spoons so they can get every last saturated Raspberry. That really is my favorite part!
I love that the large pitcher is shatterproof… big help if you are serving on a patio in the summer around people who are barefoot. (I’ve dropped my share of heavy pitchers)
