Christmas is now over; New Year is slowly approaching. There’s definitely a lot to look forward to on this special occasion. After all, it symbolizes new beginnings, which is why people should welcome it with only the best liquors from well-trusted alcohol distributors.
For the Filipino people, they celebrate New Year by preparing the best foods during Media Noche. This is, of course, welcomed with colorful, vibrant, and loud fireworks that light up their sky once midnight strikes. However, if you are still under ‘food coma’ because of eating too much last Noche Buena, then you probably haven’t thought much about what foods to prepare come New Year’s Eve. But you don’t have to worry because we’re here to help you.
Here are some food and liquor suggestions for you to consider:
Roast beef is one of the many dishes that you should definitely serve during special occasions like New Year’s. This dish is rich, tender, and overall tasty! With some red wine by your side, you would surely enjoy eating it and be indulgent as you can be.
For this particular dish, be sure to take your time preparing it to achieve a nice, tender, and juicy meat. Set a time to properly marinate the beef. If you could, try not to spare any herbs and spices while marinating it in order to put as much flavor in the meat as possible. For sure, you will receive lots of compliments as you and your family are eating your Media Noche meal.
If you’re looking for a great dish with a lot of variety, then pasta is your dish of the night. Just be sure to get all of your family’s opinions on which pasta dish they want to be their first meal this coming 2018.
If you’re looking for the best liquor to serve with your pasta dish, then you might find these tips helpful:
- Red wines go best with pastas served with a tomato base.
- White wines will complement pastas that are cheese or cream-based.
At Filipino celebrations and gatherings, you will barely see the lechon being left out. In fact, despite some regions experiencing typhoon and heavy floods last Christmas, some of them still managed to have lechons delivered to their homes and families. It’s that irresistible!
This coming New Year, serve this dish with some ice cold beers. This pairing will surely mark the start of a refreshing New Year. Just be sure to get the beers from your favorite alcohol distributors beforehand so you won’t be left without some. Remember, other people want to celebrate the New Year with the best pints of this golden elixir as well.
This dish is a great alternative to rice. For those people whose New Year’s resolution is to eat less rice, then mashed potatoes are nice to have for your Media Noche; although, you would still need to watch your intake because they could also be just as filling as rice.
If you’re wondering what alcohol is best paired with mashed potatoes, then white wine is your best bet. Both their flavors will complement each other. Again, watch your intake not only to start your diet right, but to avoid having a hangover in the morning. You wouldn’t want to begin your New Year lying in bed with a headache, right?
Barbecued ribs sure are messy to eat; but if there’s a time to indulge yourself with this dish, it would be New Year’s! Though, you might want to prepare some napkins to wipe away the mess.
To fully enjoy this dish, you got to spend some time cooking it atop a grill – the longer you smoke it, the tastier and more tender it becomes! After watching the fireworks and once you’re ready to eat, serve the ribs with a shot of whiskey. Their flavors together will surely tingle your tastebuds!
Got some extra glazed ham from your Noche Buena? Serve it again this coming New Year. Its sweetness is a good sign for all the sweet things coming to you this 2018. You can elevate it more by getting some beer to wash it down.
Doesn’t this make you salivate?
