TOP 5 SPRING KITCHEN ESSENTIALS ITEMS
ISO KITCHEN CONFESSIONS (Spring Edition #2)
Spring is finally here Y'all.. and good weather is now upon us in New York City. I wanted to share my top favorite items for this #spring . It's all about being fresh, clean, green and happiness for this spring season. This season resembles growth, the blooming of greens trees and flowers. This list was composed based on my unique "likes + needs" for this season, where I will focused on creating more iced-coffees and iced-teas, mocktails, cocktails, green juices, smoothies and bowls.
In addition, it is a good time to take advantage of eating outdoors AL-FRESCO while taking advantage of the good weather and city-life. Although, those popping clouds always surprises us with that famous saying... "April showers brings May Flowers" .
Remember to take some vitamin D outside (cautiously if you are in NYC-yikes! I have to say its been very scary and violent lately ). There's always many other alternatives, you can simply have a nice cocktail at your fire-escape, balcony, and/or patio or you can simply head over to your local park to have a nice catch-up with mother-nature and/or friends-- while eating out without spending so much money or energy in traveling.
1) COCKTAIL GLASSES
Look out for unique shapes and colorful glassware. We can call it a "statement glassware" that will exhibit your beautiful Spring Cocktail or Mocktail. Get something different, for example: it can be colorful like a green or pink glass, overexaggerated rim, long stem, an elegant coupe, or even something with optical illusions.
2) AL-FRESCO BASKET &
3) CUTTING BOARD
It's time to go grab yourself a blanket, and gather some yummy ingredients to build a charcuterie board with delicious cheeses, crackers, nuts, fruits and veggies and eat outdoors while enjoying the spring weather.
4) POUR OVER AND FRENCH PRESS
It's time of the year where we start making those luxurious- creamy iced brew coffees with delicious ingredients. Pour-over and French press coffee makers are great addition in making a fresh cup of coffee. It's a perfect item to make coffee for assembling a nice cold brew for this nice weather.
5) HIGH-SPEED BLENDER
It's smoothie season y'all... Yes, its time to gather in-season fruits and veggies to make a delish smoothie, juices or even cocktails! Yes, a high-speed blender is an expensive kitchen necessity but its an excellent investment to make smooth and velvety drinks or soups.
