Drink pairing tips

  • The ultimate drink pairing for fried chicken


    Knowing what to pair with fried chicken can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cocktail, particularly a glass of Kentucky 75. This, vibrant, cocktail balances the fatty fried chicken.

  • Margarita with your grilled burger

    When considering what goes best with grilled burger, we recommend a glass of Margarita, it truly complements the dish as it balances the spice and salt of the burger.


  • Enjoy heavy meat dish with Vieux Carre

    To elevate your heavy meat dish experience, we recommend some Vieux Carre to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cocktail cuts through the heaviness of the dish.
