Javier Quiroga: Hello! I am Javier Quiroga with To Your Taste Catering and today we’re showing you how to make some delicious dishes for a Latin Fiesta. Today I have my brother Alonso, bartender extraordinaire, so he thinks. He is going to show you how to make some drinks that go along really, really well with the dishes that we have shown you a little while ago. Alonso. Alonso Quiroga: Thank you Javier. Javier Quiroga: You’re welcome. Alonso Quiroga: Welcome back. We will be preparing now a White Sangria. The traditional is the red which comes from Andalucia, Spain. There are always changes in drinks. So we’re going to create this fabulous drink. Ingredients you will be needing, white wine, a little Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, pineapple juice and some fresh fruit, such as apples and oranges or grapes. So Javier, will you do me the honors? Javier Quiroga: What am I doing? Alonso Quiroga: Can you please open this up? Meanwhile, I will be slicing the fruit. The key to this kind of mixed drink is to cut the fruit in little squares because you want to taste the fruit in the drink. Javier Quiroga: What do you use, just oranges and apples? Alonso Quiroga: Oranges and apples are the most common or you can also do berries. Javier Quiroga: Or grapes maybe? Alonso Quiroga: Grapes could work. Javier Quiroga: Here is your vino. Alonso Quiroga: Thank you Javier Quiroga: You are welcome. Alonso Quiroga: I am slicing here. Javier Quiroga: All right. The great thing about this, I think is that you can make it for the Spanish Fiesta, Latin Fiesta we’re talking about. You can make this, put in a bowl perhaps, and then you put over some ice and they can be like a self-structured kind of thing. The same with the Margarita that we showed you before because the whole concept is to make things a little bit easier for you so you can enjoy your party a little bit and I think that works pretty good. Alonso Quiroga: Yeah, exactly you can put them in pitchers, you can put them punch bowls, or you can serve them individually for that long day of work. Javier Quiroga: And It makes a difference that which size you cut them, right? Alonso Quiroga: That's correct. You don't want them too chunky in there because also the nice part of it is when you drinking Sangria, you can get piece of apples or some oranges there to chew as you are drinking. Javier Quiroga: Okay, perfect. Alonso Quiroga: Green apples will work too. Javier Quiroga: Now you are making enough here for like two drinks, right? Alonso Quiroga: Yeah, a little more. In this case, you could be using a pitcher but this works as well. We add a little bit of ice. Then you want to get about, since we will be making two drinks, we are going to say since we are making two drinks, let’s say about eight ounces of pineapple juice. We will put about four ounces of Grand Marnier. Javier Quiroga: And you can substitute that again with? Alonso Quiroga: Triple Sec. Javier Quiroga: Okay. Alonso Quiroga: This is made of, also this is like a peach schnapps, gives a little different flavor because it's also the type of wine you use, and we always use white wine but just like every white wine you have, every grape is categorized differently. And what we’re using here is a very traditional Spanish wine, it’s very vanilla flavor, hence little nutty, like you. We put about seven to eight ounces of the white wine and you shake it. To get the flavors in there, mix it up nicely. Javier Quiroga: You make this ahead of time or just has to be done right away like a Margarita? Alonso Quiroga: You can make it ahead of time. I wouldn't suggest more than hour before because the fruit can get a little wilty. Javier Quiroga: And probably add the ice later on. Alonso Quiroga: Yeah. Javier Quiroga: All right, that makes some sense. Alonso Quiroga: I am going to use a glass. Look at this, beautiful fruits going in. I am going to just pour it like that. Can you just smell that flavor? It's nice and sweetness. Javier Quiroga: It smells really good. Alonso Quiroga: There you have it, a very refreshing drink, your White Sangria to enjoy. So here you go, Javier. Thank you. Javier Quiroga: Thank you very much, Alonso. Alonso Quiroga: Thank you. Salute. Javier Quiroga: Salute. That is delicious, delicious Sangria Alonso Quiroga: Tasty. Thank you. Javier Quiroga: Very good. Alonso Quiroga: Thank you Sir. Javier Quiroga: Yes, thank you once again for watching us. There you have it. We showed you how to make wonderful dishes for a Latin Fiesta along with some delicious, delicious cocktails. Thank you very much.
