to warm you up
No party or BBQ without drinks. But what is the ideal drink for a cosy time, Christmas, and a wintery mood? Glühwein, of course! And you can easily make it yourself. A hot mojito or an Irish Coffee is also sure to warm up your guests. Discover the recipes at the bottom of this page!
Do you prefer a drink without alcohol? Everyone loves a cup of homemade hot chocolate with a hint of cinnamon and some whipped cream.
to fill your stomach
Try something new and choose for game like deer, swine, or duck on the BBQ. Something which is perfect for the cosiest time of the year! Or make pizzas that everyone can decorate to their taste.
Or do you like cheese? Why not try and fondue on the BBQ? Melt the cheese in an aluminium tray and dip pieces of bread into the melted cheese. Snack away!

to please the eye
Transform your Pergola SO! into the cosiest place on Earth. Put some pillows and blankets down to cosily nestle together, place some candles and tea lights, and decorate your patio pergola with garlands and lights.
Get some napkins with wintery patterns and select your tableware based on the season: golden cutlery, your most beautiful cups and crockery, ... A lost bauble or some pine branches to finish the scene.
with warmth and light
No temperatures above 21 °C in winter. This means that you must make sure to provide sufficient warmth and light. Place a brazier to gather around and grill marshmallows. The infrared heating of your Pergola SO! will also keep your guests warm.
Play around with the built-in LED lighting: dim them, select a different colour temperature, or even use yellow, green, or red light. The LED starry sky in the slatted roof completes the scene.
Winter cocktails to try and taste
• 1 bottle of red wine (750 ml)
• 180 ml water
• 1 half an orange in slices
• 50 gr sugar
• 20 cloves
• 2 star anise
• 2 cinnamon sticks
Heat the water and the sugar until it has fully dissolved. Turn down the heat and add the cloves, star anise, cinnamon, and orange slices. Let it simmer until the mixture has become a syrup. Turn the heat all the way down and add the wine. Let simmer for 20 minutes and serve with an orange slice and some star anise.
The perfect Irish Coffee
• 50 ml whiskey
• 200 ml strong coffee
• 1 tsp cane sugar
• 40 ml full cream
Heat the cup or mug with hot water. Dispose of the water and add 1 tsp brown sugar and some whiskey. Fill the glass with coffee up to 1 cm below the rim and mix with a long spoon until the sugar has dissolved. Carefully pour the cream over the round side of a spoon (just above the coffee) to create a cream layer.
Hot mojito with a twist
