Today we would like to say thank you. Thank you for placing your trust in us in 2022 and being a Swat.io user. We, the Swaties, raised a glass for you at our Christmas party and are happy to count you among our customers.
Our Christmas gift to you is a donation. Rather than buying material gifts, we wanted to do something positive and donated €7,000 to the Vienna Women’s Shelters. This organization provides shelter for abused or threatened women and their children. Currently, they can offer 228 beds in five houses. In addition, the women and children receive psychological counseling as well as support in dealing with legal and administrative procedures. We are happy to be able to support this important cause together with you! ❤️
Happy holidays and we wish you a prosperous new year! 🌟

Nothing beats homemade punch when you want to get in the mood for a nice Advent weekend. Steffi from the Swat.io People team surprised us with her orange punch a while back. We loved it! Here comes the recipe for you to recreate and enjoy:
- 1l orange juice
- 600ml white wine
- 1 stick of cinnamon
- 5-7 cloves
- 150-170g sugar
- 300ml water
- 150ml Rum
Stir together all ingredients, and slowly warm it up. Let everything steep for 30 minutes and make sure it doesn’t come to a boil.
We would love to hear if you have tried the recipe and how you liked it. Cheers!
