Drink pairing tips

  • 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.

    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.

  • Kentucky 75 and fried chicken


    Wondering what to drink with your fatty fried chicken? Well you haven’t gotten the most out of the dish until you have had a vibrant Kentucky 75.
