When I think of spain I think of Sangria. You can get a huge glass on every corner of the street for a couple of euro's. Amsterdam should take note!
Sangria basically is a wine cocktail. The recipes very a bit but I like the classic style. Adding fruit is a must, always chose a hard fruit that can soak really well. You don't want mushy banana in your cocktail.
You might wonder how I could make these cool photo's, I was invited by Maxima Kitchen Equipment to try out some machines including the dry ice machine.Dry ice is used to cool things off quickly but you can also create this cool fog with it.
Be careful when using it though, dry ice has a temperature of -78 degrees celcius. Touching it with your bare hands will result in burns. Also, ventilate you room well while using it bacauxe co2 releases when it evaporates.
It may sound a bit dangerous but when you use it correctly it's awesome to use.
