Beverages both alcoholic and non alcoholic lends character and exalts food to the revered position it enjoys, quite satisfied to be the silent and strong but perfect partner to it’s glorious companion. It could be a glamorous cocktail, a robust red wine, fresh fruit juice, tea/coffee or plain water- beverages have the power to transform a simple meal into a fine dining experience. This is the reason behind dedicating an entire section on the blog to beverages and liquid refreshment.
In recent years the beverage market has seen a product explosion of sorts ranging from the bizarre to the extraordinarily refined. I am greatly looking forward to review some off the shelf items and also discuss pairings and their effect on the palate. Tried and tested recipes for some luscious cocktails and smoothies are also included.
