San Pellegrino Cocktails

Water, one of the main elements which form our body and which is a 65% of what we are. We can drink tap water, mineral water, flavoured water or sparkling water. In any case, we need it for to survive.

It is well known in summer of warm seasons our bodies need more hydration than the usual. So why not to introduce you a few refreshing tricks and recipes thanks to San Pellegrino water. An Italian brand which serves mineral water with a lightly sparkling touch and a very thin bubble which is perfect for to marriage with all sort of dishes and mixes.

Here, on this pictures from this event, you can check some of the old classics of this blog like the Bean Dip with Roasted Veggies, potatoes only on this case, cooked in slow mode giving to them a chip like almost texture.

The bread was made with different types of puff pastry, you should consult the different varieties in your respective countries but let’s say each one has a different amount of fats. You can make your variety too, adding some butter spread before to cook the puff pastry in pieces. Maybe some herbs, while to leave others without anything on top. You will see how some of this puff pastry acquires a more fluffy texture while other become more like some sort of shortbread/scone texture. Almost biscuit type but with its so characteristic puff layers.

I hope you will enjoy these non-alcoholic cocktails and that you share your own version or your opinion of them.
