Eat Like Nicole's Light & Easy Recipes: SANGRIA

Sangria means blood in Spanish in reference to the red wine used Early Greeks and Romans would prepare a cocktail known as “hippocras” mixing their wine with sugar and spices.
They used to drink it everywhere because water was bacteria-filled and unsafe to drink.
A touch of alcohol made the liquid drinkable, and mixing the watered-down wine gave it flavor. This later gave birth to mulled wine and sangria.

 

Ingredients:
3 ounces Rose Wine
3 ounces White Apple Wine
1 ounce Orange Liqueur
2 ounces Sparkling Water
3 Diced Apples
Dried Oranges

 

Method of Preparation:
Start by serving the rose, white apple wine and orange liqueur in a pitcher.

Add the sparkling water and stir.
Toss in the diced apples and dried oranges.
Serve with ice cubes and enjoy !

 

Remember to drink in moderation:

This refreshing vegan drink is made with Aquafaba to replace the egg whites and give this cocktail enough fizziness and turn it into an enjoyable drink prepared with local ingredients!

Pass the mixture through a sieve. Transfer to a Pyrex or large bowl, cling film and refrigerate overnight.

EatLikeNicole's Gin Basil: The Light & Intense Version

Ingredients: 
2 ounces Gin (Nicole used East Beirut but you can pick any local Gin you want HERE) 
2 ounces sparkling water
Orange bitter ice cubes
Handful of fresh basil leaves
1 tsp Apple molasses
Dried lemon
 
Method of Preparation:
In a mortar crush the basil leaves.
Mix with apple molasses and transfer to a glass.

Add the gin and stir.
Add the sparkling water, ice cubes garnish with dried lemon and enjoy.
-------------

 

Regular gin basil contains simple syrup made of sugar and water.
In order to prepare a healthier version I used a natural sugar that’s apple molasses sometimes known as boiled cider (it is made by reducing pressed apple cider).
Its use dates back as far as the 1600s commonly used in baking as sugar was a much more rare, expensive commodity.

Basil is a powerful antioxidant.It is an excellent source of Vitamin K.
Basil essential oil is also commonly used in aromatherapy to treat nervous tension…
If you rub fresh crushed  basil leaves on your skin, you can keep mosquitoes away as basil is a good insect repellent !

EatLikeNicole's Light & Easy Recipes: Summer Sparkling Berries

Ingredients:
3 ounces Sparkling Wine (Nicole used the Frizzante Sparkling Rose Wine from Batroun Mountains)
¼ ounce Orange Blossom Water
¼ ounce Rose Water
½ ounce Dried Red Berries Mix
 
Method of Preparation:
Start by serving the sparkling wine in a glass.
Add the orange blossom water and rose water. Stir. Toss in the red berries and enjoy.
--------

 

This refreshing drink, without added sugar allows you to stay hydrated and soothed at times where everything around you is stressful.
Remember to drink in moderation (1 glass per day for women > 18 years old) (2 glasses per day for men > 18 years old).

This local sparkling wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes delivering a burst of red fruits including strawberry and raspberry cream, fresh and crisp acidity with a pleasant roundness.
Just like red wine, sparkling wine contains flavonoids that have antioxidant properties.

Orange blossom water has long been known to soothe and relax nerves and has long been drank in the Middle East with water and claims to be a great digestive remedy.

Rose water contains antioxidants and enhances mood while relieving headaches and has beneficial effects on the digestive system (including bloating and upset stomach).

Dried berries are rich in antioxidants and add to this drink a natural sweet taste.
