8th August onwards......

This is happening for the 1st time in India, that an eatery has launched a Sangria Bar. This Salad and Sangria festival at Barcelos, Khan Market, focuses on 21 types of Sangria; yes you read it correct its 21 Types and a good number of Salads.

For the 1st time ever, in the culinary history of India has anyone dared to do so. Barcelos has always been in news for their ever new and daring innovations in the food market like the Black and Red burgers.

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 bright.
