Have a TAPAS PARTY or add a Romantic Spanish Dinner (Paella anyone?) to complete your menu!

Recommended by our bartender:

“Of course, Sangria (red or white) is a perfect accompaniment to Tapas. I also recommend Agua de Valencia (Cava, fresh-squeezed orange juice and Cointreau) or Pantera Rosa  (Vodka, Chambord, fresh-squeezed lime juice, Cava)”

Salpicon de Bacaloa

Salpicon are cold salads, favored in Mexico. This dishes fuses that technique with classic Spanish ingredients, salt cod, green olives, capers and roasted red peppers, with a Dijon EVO dressing.

This menu is also suitable as a TASTING STATION. Tasting Stations are a fun way to do dinner or a cocktail party. They don’t require traditional tabletop service (flatware, dinner plates, etc.), are great for traffic flow and especially work well if your guests are not arriving all at once or you don’t have enough space for seating for a more traditional dinner service.
