Drink pairing tips

  • Margarita and grilled burger


    When considering how to best enjoy your grilled burger, we would highlight how well a glass of Margarita complements the dish as it balances the spice and salt of the burger.


  • Enjoy 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.

  • The perfect match for heavy meat dish

    Experts suggest pairing a heavy meat dish with a glass of Vieux Carre, a popular cocktail.


Factoids

  • A match made in heaven: 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.

  • The traditional pecan pie

    If you take a trip to pecan pie, then the well-known, tasty pecan pie should be on your radar! It is a local classic.

  • A big feat in 2011

    A little hot dog never hurt anybody! The size of the longest hot dog might surprise you, coming in at 668 feet 8 inches! How big of a kitchen do you need to make that?
