Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal pairing for grilled burger

    Experts often pair grilled burger with a glass of Margarita, a popular cocktail.

  • 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.

  • Zinfandel and barbecue


    If you love drinking Zinfandel, try eating barbecue next time for a flavourful experience. The red wine from California complements the dish very well.

Fun facts

  • An 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.

  • A classic dish

    The delicious, renowned dish hamburger needs to be had if you take a trip to The United States!

  • Celebrating American

    If you’re a big fan of American, then you should definitely consider visiting the Seymour Wisconsin Annual Hamburger Festivale in Wisconsin, The United States
