Food is what makes the world go round. Alcohol is a second best when it comes to things most of the world enjoys. The best part of both of these things is that sometimes there are specific drinks that pair up so well with certain alcoholic beverages. It’s fun to mix and match, but finding the right match makes everything you eat and drink taste so much better. One example of this would be nachos and a margarita. There are many times when people drink alcohol, and suddenly get a craving for nachos. Margaritas are sweet and savory, which leads your body to wanting nachos, which are so delicious, and match with the drink perfectly. If you like beer, then you would love a beer cocktail and beef jerky. A good beer cocktail would be a mix of rye whiskey with sweet vermouth, lemon juice, apple juice, and Miller High Life. This cocktail suits beef jerky just amazingly. Your mouth will be watering and enjoying every sip and bite. If you are a meat eater, and love it to be tender, then you will surely enjoy duck and a sherry cobbler. The sherry cobbler is very palate cleansing, without being overly boozy. It’s citrusy and great after a heavy meal like that.
For all of you chocolate lovers, pairing chocolate and mezcal is highly recommended. Having a darker chocolate would go better with this drink. Maybe even have a little bit of spice added to it such as cayenne and sea salt. It’s truly mind blowing. Your taste buds will be smiling for a while. A spicy paloma goes will with tacos, jalapenos, and tomatoes after a long day. Sparkling wine and sushi are a great pair. They are both light, and can be enjoyed equally. Don’t forget about dessert; an intense Sazerac goes very well with chocolate or vanilla ice cream, maybe even a big piece of chocolate cake. Whatever you decide to pair, just make sure your taste buds love it. Enjoy the fun.
