Having a glass of wine with dinner is a very typical thing to do; having a cocktail is absolutely way more exciting. Learning to pair the right cocktail with your food can be tricky, but there are a few combinations that go really well together: nachos and a Margarita are divine together; the world is obsessed with nachos on a regular basis, and a margarita is one of the most common drinks to order at a bar or restaurant. This combination just makes pure sense; it’s sweet and savory to say the least. Cheese and Negroni are really great too; a hard cheese works best, like parmesan. If you’re feeling very manly, try beef jerky and a beer cocktail together; homemade beef jerky paired with a cocktail mixed with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, apple juice, lemon juice, and Miller High Life is just what you need to have a relaxing night after a long day’s work.
The world loves sushi; what better combination than to pair it with French 75? It’s the gin version, and it’s absolutely perfect with sushi. For a bit of sweet and comforting food, have duck and a sherry cobbler; the duck is heavy and rich, while the sherry cobbler is palate cleansing. It has a bit of citrus flavor, but isn’t too overwhelming; it will be amazing. Tequila cocktails pair really well with Mexican food; tacos and a spicy Paloma will be a very interesting and enjoyable duo. ‘Last Word’ with honeydew and cantaloupe are just pure magic on the palate. A dark chocolate (that can be a little spicy) paired with Mezcal is a bit mind blowing. Sazerac and ice cream blend really well together as a dessert; sweet and intense flavors will explode on your palate with pure joy. Enjoy the new and exciting combinations.
