Drink pairing tips

  • Pair fried chicken with Kentucky 75

    To elevate your fried chicken experience, we recommend some Kentucky 75 to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cocktail cuts the fat of the fried skin.

  • A great drink pairing for grilled burger

    Knowing what to pair with grilled burger can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cocktail, particularly a glass of Margarita. This, sweet, cocktail balances the spicy and salty grilled burger.

  • Pair Chardonnay with shellfish

    With its strong and acidic flavors, Chardonnay matches a shellfish really well because it balances richness with acidity. You won’t go wrong with this white wine.

Fun facts

  • Name a more iconic duo: Spanish granache & mac and cheese

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s mac and cheese you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a Spanish granache. The ripe, fruity sweet flavors of the Spanish granache won’t detract from the flavors of your mac and cheese.
