AWhile we’re strong promoters of always having a cup of Joe in your hand; made from flavorful, roasted coffee beans to create a final cup that’s brewed to perfection, we begrudgingly accept there are other choices too. And not everyone absolutely adores coffee as we do. So, we decided to share a handful of ideas for interesting food and drink options to change things up a little.
Here are some tips on how you might bravely stretch beyond being a coffee drinker.
Rich Nutella Chocolate Drink and Tasty Nibbles
Nutella made by Ferrero, who create those other nutty treats in a box, is almost an institution in some households. There’s the Nutella chocolate spread, but there’s also Nutella & Go! which includes dipping sticks and the delicious chocolate goodness to enjoy. Nutella contains cocoa, hazelnuts (they have their own farm), palm oil, sugar, Lecithin, Vanillin, and milk.
Now before you go thinking that, because we’re all about the beverages on this blog, why the tasty treats? Well hold your horses there. There’s a delicious hot chocolate drink made from Nutella that’s to die for. Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas morning, it’s hard to find anything more decedent than this. You only need Nutella and warm milk that’s been heated but not allowed to curdle, so it’s rich in calcium and flavor too.
See our Nutella with cookie bits article for further inspiration.
Wine for the Shared Experience
Whether you’re not much of a wine drinker or have particular tastes, you cannot always get just the right bottle when you desire it. It’s often out of stock, especially if it’s something rather special that’s difficult to source because of its desirability.
Buying difficult to source or rare wines provides an excellent treat for yourself, your partner and invited guests to look forward to. In these situations when you’re in need of satisfying the taste buds with a rare tipple, then you’ll be glad that you planned ahead first. Investing in a Eurocave wine cabinet gives you the ability to cater to an interest in wine by having a portable cellar. The Eurocave cabinets come in different heights, widths and bottle capacities, so you’re sure to find one with enough storage space for your requirements. This way, you can keep your favorite bottle chilled ready to be enjoyed.
Interesting Non-Alcoholic Beverages for a Sober Party
Preparing some alternative drinks to the usual bottle of soda pop gives kids or adult something different to try. The sparkling pear punch sounds a like a real winner. It combines a pear sliced up with carbonated water to give it that extra kick. Create a pitcher of it and let it sit in the refrigerator to allow the flavor of the pear to naturally infuse into the drink before serving it with ice. Also, Tablespoon have some excellent party drink suggestions that are worth a look.
As you can tell, there are plenty of interesting ways to try different things and not neglect your taste buds when you do. Don’t be afraid to experiment every once in a while, too.
