Drink pairing tips

  • Enjoy prawn curry with saffron lassi

    To elevate your prawn curry experience, we recommend some saffron lassi to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cold drink cools the palate between bites.

  • Viognier with your shellfish curry

    If your food palns include Curry, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Viognier, with its hits of peach-and-apricot, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • A next-level pairing for Chardonnay

    When having butter chicken, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.
