Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal 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.


  • A next-level match for barbecue

    When ordering barbecue, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Zinfandel, a popular red wine.
