After huge success in introducing Black and Red color Burgers, Barcelos is back with another concept for those who love drinks and healthy appetizers. To thrill its customers, this time Barcelos is introducing India’s first Sangria Bar. With the launch of multi variety Sangria, Barcelos is celebrating ‘Salads & Sangria’ festival.
For the first time in world, Barcelos is going to introduce maximum 21 varieties of Sangria at its Khan Market located restaurant. Luckily I got an invite from Barcelos to taste the classic sangrias and salad.
Sangria is a typical beverage from Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. Chopped fruit can include orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape, kiwifruit and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar, syrup, or orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other liquids such as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added. Sangria is steeped while chilled for as little as minutes or up to a few days.At Barcelos, Sangrias made with fresh chopped fruits and white and red wines.
First time I tried alcoholic Sangrias at Barcelos which include White Lemongrass Sangria, Watermelon & Apple Sangria, Mango & Chili Sangria with Basil, Peach Sangria, Ginger & Clove Sangria, Pomegranate & Rosemary Sangria, and Cucumber Sangria.
Love the flavors and smell of wine, personally I fall in love with Cucumber and Lemon Sangria with white wine and secondly Watermelon and Apple Sangria. They used high quality of wine for sangria were accompanied with healthy salads. The sangrias are available for Rs. 255 per glass.
I tried Capris Salad which made with fresh green and red lettuce, caramelized roasted nuts (almonds and walnuts), grilled tomatoes and zucchini with pesto sauce and sweet onion dip… love the taste of onion dip and nice texture…..so creamy. The portions were good and love the whole platter…. very impressive.
The other salads which are available at Barcelos, Pear & Chicken Salad with Peri Peri Dip, Fattoush Salad and Grilled Orange & Watermelon Salad which made with orange, pears, watermelon, melon seeds and roasted nuts. Love the combination of Sangrias and healthy salads…. love the colors and flavors…. fresh and aromatic.
For this festival, Barcelos is offering combo of one salad and one sangria priced at Rs 375.
