INGREDIENTS
Barbecook Junko
Serves:
10
Preparation time:
15 – 20 minutes
Special equipment:
wooden spoon, Barbecook Dutch Oven or a fireproof old pot (that won’t matter if it gets black from the smoke), mugs with handles
Ingredients:
3 L apple juice, 5 cm ginger, 4 star anise pods, 4 cinnamon sticks, 1 tsp juniper berries (or cloves), 1 orange (or an apple or a lemon), optional: honey
Optional for dad:
bourbon or dark rum

A drink that perfectly reflects the cosy atmosphere of winter, Christmas markets and chilly evenings: Glüh Juice!

In a large pot, heat some apple juice with all sorts of flavouring ingredients: star anise, lemon, cinnamon, juniper berries, ginger, etc. Bring to the boil, allowed to infuse and you have a hot, aromatic drink: something that children will be sure to enjoy. For fathers – generally lovers of slightly stronger drinks – a splash of dark rum can be added. If that isn’t enough to warm you up, we don’t know what will!


Tips:

  • Use high-quality apple juice. Organic is best: it is, after all, the basic ingredient.
  • We recommend preparing the flavouring ingredients in advance.
  • Have the kids lend a hand with slicing the lemons or oranges. The fathers, however, should take care of the stirring. An open fire, you know!
  • Star anise, ginger or cinnamon may not be ingredients that many children are familiar with. Let them touch, smell and taste the ingredients: an educational tasting experience!
  • Cut the apples or oranges into stars, moons or another shape of your choice and let them swim in the juice. After all, children love things to look special!
  • Give them mugs with a handle to make them easier to hold.
  • The fathers get a splash of brown rum in their mugs, although bourbon might be a better match in this case.


Preparation

  1. Rinse the orange. Cut into slices.
  2. Light up the Junko: start with a few small pieces of wood and some lighter cubes and build the fire from here.
  3. Put everything except for the bourbon or rum in the Dutch Oven and suspend it from a hook above the fire. Heat the juice. (If you are using an old pot, you can place it on the grill of the Junko.)
  4. Stir occasionally.
  5. Serve in cups. Finish the fathers’ drinks with a shot of bourbon or rum.
