The Basics of Pairing Liquor with Food

22 09 2017

You love delicious food and you love luscious drinks. When these two come together in a perfectly matched pair, the eating and drinking experience reaches the next level. Wine, whiskey, vodka or any other drink has at least one perfectly complementing food item. You might have your own tastes but you never know when you can discover an even more wonderful food and drink combination; the perfect pair that will become your go to. We have some ideas that might work for you-

Red Wine and Meat

The strong flavor of Red Wine goes well with foods that have equally vigorous flavors. Roast lamb makes for a great accompaniment with this bright red drink. Don’t forget to enjoy some cheese while you are indulging in Red Wine.

White Wine and Fish

Pouring white wine and background

As opposed to Red Wine, White Wine has a milder flavor. It pairs well with foods having delicate flavor. If you are into seafood then stock up on White Wine as it complements them well especially fish.

Champagne and Chicken

There cannot be a more perfect combination than that of the indulgent fried chicken and delicately sweet Champagne. Champagne doesn’t alter the taste of chicken, just adds the perfect finishing touch.

Vodka and Onion Rings

Planter's Punch

Decadence reaches its peak with Vodka. Enjoy this one with onion rings or smoked fish. Pickled or crispy vegetables also pair nicely with Vodka.

Bourbon and Pickled Vegetables

The sweet and spicy Bourbon is best enjoyed with pickled vegetables. The saltiness of the pickles also lessens the burning sensation of this drink.

Whiskey and Biryani

Biryani and tandoori chicken are the best foods to have Whiskey with. Any kind of Whiskey makes great accompaniment to these satiating foods.

Brandy and Chocolate Brownie

Aged Brandies and mildly sweet brownies are a match made in heaven. The silky texture and dry fruit flavors of Brandy lend an irresistible edge to the brownies.

Beer

Stronger the flavor of your food, stronger should be the Beer! The taste of Beer is enhanced by salty foods while this bubbly also offsets sweet dishes perfectly.

Cocktails and Fish

Fish is a great food to mitigate the effect of cocktails like Margaritas and Cosmopolitan.

5 Dishes You Should Definitely Eat in Jaipur

8 09 2017

Jaipur is famous for its imposing monuments, vibrant culture and delicious cuisine. The food items from the city are so popular that every food lover must have at least heard of them. You will rarely find a person who has never heard the names daal, baati, churma. But mind you, Pink City has much more to offer other than these. The city has as much for non-veg foodies as for vegetarians. The food here is heavenly and you should definitely try the following dishes when in Jaipur-

Keema Baati

baati

This is not your regular plain or masala baati. Keema baati is stuffed with keema or minced meat. To make the stuffing, keema is mixed with aromatic spices and is cooked till tender. Baati stuffed with the prepared minced meat is then baked on slow flame. The exterior is crunchy while the contents inside just melt in your mouth. This heritage dish of Rajasthan is certainly a must relish.

Laal Maas

Probably the most well-known non-veg recipe from Jaipur, Laal Maas is for you if you are into really hot food. Tender pieces of meat coupled with thick gravy is every foodie’s dream. The gravy is full of hot red chilies. Everyone coming to Jaipur wants to get taste of this royal fare and we are sure that you don’t want to miss out either.

Gatta Masala

Besan Gutta Curry

Chickpea flour is a huge part of Rajasthani cuisine. In gatta masala, dumplings made of chickpea flour are the main ingredients. The tangy gravy is made using generous quantities of yogurt. The dish is not too spicy so anyone can enjoy its decadent flavours.

Lassi

lassi

This famous yogurt drink has the power to revive your senses with just a few sips. Sweet and sour flavours of Jaipur’s Makhaniya Lassi will make you go wow. Lassi here is served with dollops of butter. This is one drink that will make you forget all other soft and hard drinks.

Ghevar

ghewar

Another specialty of Jaipur, Ghevar is a sweet-dish made of refined flour and milk. It is dipped in sugar syrup for sweetness. You can have it plain like this or if you want a richer experience, try ghevar topped with condensed milk and dry fruits. There is one condition though, ghevar is available only during the holy Saawan month but this sweet is so yummy that you would want to come to Jaipur every Saawan just for ghevar.

Drastically different from Forresta, Jai’pour brings the romance of Greece to Jaipur. Inspired by the bright blue and shining white locales of Santorini, Jai’pour Café and Bar is a different world altogether. The rooftop café and bar opened last year and has already been awarded as ‘Noteworthy Newcomer’ by Times Food & Nightlife wards 2017.

Having your favorite cocktail but are you having it in the right glass?

23 08 2016

Through old times, cocktail has been served in a particular manner. There is always a right glass for the right drink but with changing times of mix and match, this trend has also changed.

Come let us help you identify some of the glasses that are commonly used although now alternatives come in various shapes and sizes.

1. Wine glass As the name suggests, these glasses are typically made to serve wine in them. The long stick at the end is what one is supposed to hold so that the drink doesn’t warm up quickly. This holds a typical volume of 250 to 300 ml / 8.8 to 10.6 Oz.

2. Margarita glass– This Margarita bearer is also called as a “cocktail glass”. These glasses carry a volume of 250 ml / 8.8 Oz which are again to be held from the stick.

Cosmopolitan

 

3. Champagne flute– The slim elegant glass holds a capacity of 200 ml / 7.0 Oz of best quality champagne. The tall shape of the glass prevents the drink from going flat too fast. Also, it prevents the bubbles from rising upwards giving the best visual effects.

4. Martini glass– Also called as “Martini Saucer” makes the drink look royal. Martini can be poured in it easily due to the broad opening but this may even cause you problem on the dance floor where it can easily spill out. It can carry a volume of 250ml / 8.8 Oz.

Blue Lagoon

 

5. Shot glass The drinks in these glasses are supposed to be swallowed in a single gulp. They are small glasses with a little capacity of 25 ml or 50 ml / 0.9 to 1.8 Oz.

6. Brandy snifter– Known by other names also such as goblet or balloon due to the shape of the glass. Fine quality brandy is poured in to the widest area of the glass. Large surface area allows the aroma of the contents to rise and be concentrated at the narrow mouth for maximum effect. It can carry a volume of 350 ml / 12.3 Oz.

7. Beer mug– These are typically used for drinking beer and may vary exceedingly in sizes from 400 ml up to 2000 ml / 14.1 up to 70.4 Oz.
