We had been hearing about this gin and tonic flavored drink for months, launched by the gin brand itself to reach a more "decent" target. We have finally uncorked it and tasted it. It's not that it has no alcohol at all but the content is minimal, 0.5%. It is not very clear to us if those five tenths give it some life or we imagine it, we feel like it. Smell, it smells like lemon soda. It doesn't have a hint of lime, it must have a few squeezes. Taste, more tonic flavorings are perceived than anything else. Gas, not much. As if the glass had been watered down. If you had three or four (glasses), by the fifth maybe this would be a hit. Score: 6/10Price: 1,50 .
It wasn't at DIA (at least not the one we visit frequently), it was at El Corte Inglés where we found the other variant. Similar, except that the bitter slap of grapefruit seems a bit excessive. However, whoever likes it will like it; the "ball" is more noticeable, even if it is not alcoholic. We'll stick with the lime.Score: 5/10Price: 1,50 .
The origin of marinades seems to be more linked to a practical function than a purely gustatory one, as it is an ancient method of preserving foods, mainly meats. In the absence of refrigeration or vacuum technology, a piece of meat completely covered by a liquid insulated the piece from the air, delaying its oxidation.
Although it is also believed that spiced marinades were also used to hide food that was already in poor condition, again mainly meats, this is a myth banished by historians. Spices were very expensive and those who could afford them were not going to waste them to mask the bad taste of a supposedly spoiled meat. More plausible seems the use of very vinegary mixtures or with abundant onion and garlic for this purpose.
Marinade is the mixture of ingredients in which a food is submerged or covered to let it rest for a determined time in order to give it more flavor, aroma and, occasionally, to partially modify its texture. Raw, partially cooked or fully cooked food can be marinated or pickled before tasting.
It's spring, summer (with its consequent operation bikini) is just around the corner and the goal is twofold: to have fun having a few beers on the terrace and lose weight. Looking for tips to lose weight without giving up the good life? Then ask yourself the right questions. We have asked ourselves, for example, what kind of alcoholic beverages are most fattening. We all know that alcohol contains empty calories and is therefore included in the list of the five things you should never try if you want to lose weight. But are all types of alcohol equally fattening? Let's take a look.
Alcoholic beverages (unlike packaged foods) are not required to display nutritional information on the label. They are not, in fact, foods per se. But you can do some research to see which ones have the most calories.
There are many times that the product is presented to you as if it were totally free of alcohol, but when you look at the label, you realize that it has a minimum percentage. Therefore, it is very important to read the labels of the products we buy, as this is where all the information really is.
In fact, when we look at the front label of the bottle and see that it says 0.0%, it means that it has no alcohol at all. On the other hand, if it says "alcohol-free", it means that it may contain a minimum percentage of alcohol, specifically 0.5%.
This is important to know since there are certain population groups that cannot drink alcohol, such as pregnant women, patients under medical treatment and patients with pathologies that prevent them from drinking alcohol, such as patients with mental, neurodegenerative, immunological, cardiac, anemia and many others.
It is the turn of a very popular drink in the world, and one of the first beverages to be marketed without alcohol, beer. The fermentation of malt is done in a certain way, which does not become an alcoholic beverage.
