Move Over Wine, Cocktails Are The New Partner For Food (NAPSA) - If you're like a growing number of hosts, you've made room at your table for some creative dinner/drink pairings. Today, more and more people are enjoying a variety of spirits and mixed cocktails with their meals, rather than just wine. Though they are not sommeliers or master mixologists, they enjoy experimenting with new tastes, flavors and textures to spice up their culinary occasions.
Many spirits, such as gin, enhance the flavor of foods and create a heightened level of taste sophistication and enjoyment. Gin is created by adding botanicals, most notably juniper, to a distilled spirit. It is this botanical composition that plays off of the notes and spices of certain foods, releasing new layers of taste sensation.
Superpremium gin Bombay Sapphire has a harmonious blend of 10 botanicals, including oris (root) from Italy and licorice from China, that make it extremely versatile and a natural food partner. The specific blend of botanicals that makes Bombay Sapphire ideal for classic cocktails, such as the Ultimate Martini, to exotic mixed drinks, such as the Strawberry & Basil Martini, makes it an excellent choice for food pairings as well.
Try these pairing ideas:
Muddle first 3 ingredients in the base of a cocktail shaker, then add Bombay Sapphire and remaining ingredients with a large scoop of ice. Shake vigorously, then double strain into your chilled martini glass.
