As soon as the temperatures rise and the sun is shining, it is high time for an evening barbecue. As with any party, good preparation is important for a successful evening and satisfied guests. To make your next barbecue evening something special and, above all, more exclusive, we have collected some ideas for a barbecue evening. This will turn it into a luxury event in a very friendly way.
1.A tasty seasoning as one of many ideas for a barbecue evening
We often prefer the extravagant sounding marinades. However, many do not know that salt is often enough for a tasty steak. In fact, salt is the most important condiment in the preparation of meat and it gives it the right flavor. But sometimes you want more variety and are looking for that special something that makes the steak a taste surprise. One of the ideas for grilling is already seasoned salt, which harmonizes better with it’s own aroma and even refines it. The DARIO’S FLOR DE SAL consists of different exotic Flor de Sal variations that will turn your barbecue evening into a culinary journey. It is important that the meat is only salted shortly before grilling. Otherwise it will draw too much liquid from it and thus become dry. Sensitive foods such as seafood, smaller pieces of meat or shashlik skewers should only be salted after grilling.
2. Real drinks for a luxurious barbecue evening
Of course, beer and chilled white wine should not be missing on a real barbecue evening. These go well with all meat dishes and are always well received. But sparkling lemonades and homemade cocktails make the evening different from conventional ones and testify to your creativity. One of many great ideas for grilling is the classic caipirinha. This is always well received and lifts the mood all by itself. The most famous cocktail from Brazil has meanwhile found many followers all over the world. It can also be easily copied at home.
Ingredients for an original Brazilian caipirinha:
- a large lime
- 2 tablespoons of cane sugar
- Crushed ice
Cut the ends of the limes, cut in half and slice. Put the cane sugar and lime slices in a shaker, use a bar pestle to squeeze all the juice out of the limes. Fill the shaker almost to the top with ice and add a shot of cachaca (about 5cl). Close the shaker and shake everything well, stirring with a spoon if necessary. Caipirinha is not only easy and quick to prepare, it also always tastes wonderfully refreshing. In addition, it gives the evening a Brazilian zest for life and pure euphoria that won’t leave any guest so quickly.
3. Matching cutlery as another one of the ideas for grilling
An appealing table decoration shows your personal taste and is one of the most important requirements for a pleasant atmosphere. Often there is a lack of high-quality cutlery at barbecues, which is, however, extremely important for the entire experience. In particular, good knives are part of the enjoyment of good meat, which can be enjoyed with ease. One of the ideas for grilling, which also fits perfectly with all other evenings, is the WMF Set by Michael Michalsky. This combines unusual design with a pleasant feel and is therefore an eye-catcher on every dining table. You will convince every guest with aesthetics and quality that should never be neglected even at a barbecue evening.
4. Idea for grilling: a stylish music system
A successful evening consists of several components: good food and drink, great furnishings and of course suitable music. With the latter, both the selection and the sound are important. A good system is therefore part of the basic equipment if you want to have guests at home on a regular basis. Music is not just one of the ideas for grilling, but is actually suitable in every situation in life. The Ruark Audio A7 inspires every guest with a stylish retro look and improved amplifier circuit. In addition, the latest digital technology enables streaming from mobile phones, which is why the music can be controlled from anywhere. So sit outside in the middle of the action in the midst of your guests and react individually to their music requests. Or you can surprise them with a suitable song, so that the mood lifts by itself.
5. Delicious snacks for in between to round off a perfect evening
A barbecue evening lives from the moments before, in between and after. Conversations, dances and jokes fill the evening with memories, but small snacks and nibbles complete it with the right aftertaste. Good ideas for grilling are snacks such as herbal baguette, ciabatta with delicious spreads, peanuts, pistachios or some cheese. However, some people are looking for more variety and find it in unusual, exotic side dishes. After all, for a very special evening you have to broaden your culinary horizons. How about, for example, original Italian breadsticks? Or classic chips that have been refined with the salt from Ibiza? Another highlight are roasted cashews, which have been tainted with a fragrant chili note. These are just a few of the many ideas for a barbecue evening.
With originality, creativity and the right feeling for your guests, the next barbecue will be a very special event. Our ideas for a barbecue evening can help you to be the best host who leaves nothing to be desired.
