Drink pairing tips

  • Cilantro Chile Cooler with your banh mi

    When considering how to best enjoy your banh mi, we would highlight how well a glass of Cilantro Chile Cooler complements the dish as it cuts through the fattiness of the sandwich.


  • Mangose and banh mi


    If your food palns include Banh mi, then you should consider helping it along with some beer. We find that a Mangose, with its hits of fruit, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • Pair banh mi with Kabinett

    For an elevated experience, pair your banh mi with Kabinett. This combination works particularly well because this white wine cools the jalapeno with the sweetness of the wine.
