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

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.

Wine Etiquette to Know, Before Saying “Cheers”

21 12 2013

Thank God it’s weekend ! Yes, the much awaited weekend arrives. You wish to cheer a glass of wine with a bunch of your friends in the lush green ambiance of Forresta, which is undoubtedly a great idea.

But this time, your friends would like to be at your place for the party. You’re also excited about the party and want to throw a party that your friends remember forever. But you are a bit nervous as you’ve never thrown a cocktail party before at home. Worry not! You just need to learn the social rules of how to store, serve and enjoy wine to make party a big hit. Here we go –

As you know lighter white wines are great to serve before dinner. But serving them at the right temperature is essential.  The temperature at which you store and serve wine can alter the chemistry of the wine. The basic rule that goes with wines is “Serve Reds Warm and Whites Cold”. Red wine loses its acidic taste if served warmer than 65 degrees. Cold wines tend to lose flavors at around 45 degrees.

Always uncork the bottle about an hour before you drink. The quality diminishes if a bottle is left open at room temperature for long.

To choose right wine glasses is another aspect of wine etiquette that you must follow. Ensure your wine glasses are plain and transparent, made of crystal or glass. This allows you to appreciate the wine’s color in them. Wine Glasses must have a stem to hold. This avoids the heat of your hands to warm the wine.

Another point you must make a note of is filling the glass precisely. Never fill a wine glass to the brim. Fill white wine glasses one-half full, red wine glasses one-third full, and sparkling wines such as champagne, about three-quarters full.

Image
Proper pour is also significant. Pour sparkling wines gently, so that bubbles of wines are preserved. And, pour the wine in the center of the glass to enable the aroma float upwards.

Hope, you are now perfectly set to welcome your guests! No matter what, your guests are undoubtedly going to have a great time and appreciate the thought you put into serving wines. So, raise a glass and toast. Cheers!
