Sangria is a typical
beverage from Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit,
a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy or any other liquor as is
happening nowadays. Chopped fruit can include orange, lemon, lime, apple,
peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape, kiwifruit and mango. A sweetener such
as honey, sugar, syrup, or orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other
liquids such as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added. Sangria is steeped while
chilled for as little as minutes or up to a few days.
You can get both variants of Sangria (red and white) at
Barcelos. They are also doing some with the Rose’ wine too. I tried 6-7 of
them, and was very much impressed by the way the have done them. Right amount
of sweetness and right amount of fruit with the vibrant flavors of wine and
other ingredients. Amongst others, my favorites were Rosemary and Pomegranate,
cucumber, and the peachy one.
|Salads and Sangrias|
To accompany a glass of cold sangria, they have
introduced a good number of salads as well. I bet you, Salads go very well
along with Sangria or wine per se. I tried the Caprese , which was really very
well made with a burst of fresh flavors of pesto and an innovative sweet onion
dressing. The Fattoush is also very good and refreshing. Both veg as well non
veg salad variants are available.
So get up and get going for you own share of good life.
A glass or more of Sangria with healthy and hearty Salads will surely turn you
