The Spanish 3-course menu is composed of some of the best Spain has to offer and much can be prepared in advance, so you have time to enjoy yourself when the guests arrive.
The welcome drink is well known to anyone who has been to Spain, sangria. It's cool and delicious and instead of ice cubes, I put strawberries, raspberries and blueberries in the freezer and pour them frozen into the sangria. Then you preserve the taste and the sangria is not diluted by ice cubes that melt. You can find a recipe for a delicious sangria HERE . If you don't feel like making sangria yourself, you get ready-made mixes on the pole, which can be added to fruit and berries before serving.
The starter is a cold tomato soup, gazpacho, which can be prepared well in advance. It is served with toasted olive bread and serrano ham on top and you can find the recipe HERE .
For the starter we drink a Spanish white wine, Terras Gauda O Rosal 2021. It has a fruity aroma marked by ripe fruit, citrus, apple and flower and has hints of tropical fruit.
The main course is one of the most Spanish things there is, namely the national dish, paella. It mainly consists of rice, chicken and shellfish and you can find the recipe HERE .
For the main course, we serve a Bardos Reserva 2016, which is a mature red wine, with fruity, red berries and some tannins.
The dessert is flan de Naranja, which is an orange and caramel pudding, which is highly recommended, and you can find the recipe HERE .
For dessert, it tastes good with a glass of Moscatel de Cheste, which is sold in 3 litres. at Vinmonopolet.
