Many wine experts do not approve of these cocktails, but for most of all, they are a delight and ideal for relieving the heat!
Mérida, Yuc., May 03, 2021, (GOURMET DE MÉXICO).- Although enologists, purists, tasters, and wine producers assure that preparing cocktails with this wine is a serious sacrilege, the truth is that the mixology that uses it as a base is a reality that increases as the temperature of the season rises in places like the Yucatan.
Or do you remember how many times you were saved from a heat stroke thanks to a clericot, a tinto de verano, or a sangria? Sure several times. Now, would you know how to prepare them if necessary? Do you know the differences between one and the other?
We have to admit that, by asking ourselves the same question, we get quite confused. That is why we looked for José Luis León, bartender at Limantour Roma, to explain a little about the specifications of these variant preparations of red wine.
According to León, it is very easy to identify each drink, but for this, you have to go back to its classic versions. For example, sangria is initially red wine with lemonade (made with fruit juice, mineral water, and sugar) and a splash of vodka. In turn, the Clericot has red wine, lemon or lime soda, and pieces of melon, apple, peach, and strawberry on top. The tinto de verano, for its part, only has the wine mixed with lemon soda and is without fruit.
León does not disagree with this type of cocktails. He even says that, to make them even better, he recommends using young Mexican wines, especially from Ensenada, or Valle de Guadalupe in Baja California, as well as using quality inputs in general, then, looking for a good brand of soft drink, to make sure that only fresh fruit is chopped for a Clericot.
He also considers that one should not be closed to the option of a summer white, prepared with the same ingredients as a red, but with a refreshing and non-aged white wine.
Now that you know that the differences between one and another cocktail are subtle but totally identifiable, you should encourage yourself to prepare any of them at home. It is very easy and goes perfectly well with almost any food that you crave for this hot season in Yucatan.
Today in The Yucatan Times, we leave you this recipe for Clericot with rosé wine, perfect to surprise a special person or simply to relax and pamper yourself on a hot afternoon.
