Ceviche, like many Latin American foods and wine, is pretty hot right now. Chefs are playing around with different flavor combinations as the possibilities are limitless.  In Peru you can buy freshly made ceviche on the beach without moving from your towel- so why not take it poolside? An ideal hot weather food, you can throw the ingredients together in the morning and by lunchtime the acid will have “cooked” the fish. Or if you’re in LA you can cheat and check out LA Weekly’s list of good places to find ceviche.

Vinho Verde- the ultimate pool wine. With its low alcohol and slight effervescence, you’ll enjoy sipping this light Portuguese white all day long on your chaise and still be able to stand up afterwards. It is fantastic with spicy food and so can handle whatever fire you put in your ceviche. It’s still kind of a wine world secret, but you’re always ahead of the crowd, right?

  1. Wow – never hear of it! It is a definite on my summer wine list. I like to have a few glasses of wine with friends & family – but the hot humid weather makes the wine go straight to my head. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Your style is very unique in comparison to other people I have read stuff from.

    I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess
    I’ll just bookmark this web site.
