With the holidays upon us and New Year's Eve fast approaching, many are making their final selections for the spirit or adult beverage of their choice.
There are many options when it comes to selecting the right spirit for your holiday setting, so I'm offering a bit of beverage background to ease your selection process.
My selection for adult beverage is wine. Wine excites my palate with a bit of sexiness and a hint of exotic. There are an array of wines. Each is paired based on social experience, setting, and host preference. Traditionally, white wines are coupled with soft events and dinners with chicken or pork. Red wines are served with beef, veal, and some etiquette professionals suggest turkey.
I recommend a consultation with a professional event planner to prevent any faux pas in designing a formal party of gala. However, if it's an evening among friends, make a selection based on attendees, requests, and of course host preference.
My short list of preferred wines are: Barbera, Syrah, Chardonnay, Malbec, and Riesling.
Are you a wine connoisseur? If you're planning a party soon, what will be your wine choice?
