You know what they say: your choice of alcoholic beverage says a lot about you. What do you find yourself reaching for when you just want to kick back and enjoy the evening? A glass of red wine says you’re all about style and sophistication. White wine says you like to keep it safe. A gin and tonic says you live life on your own terms. Beer says you know how to keep it chill on a Friday night. Scotch says you know your liquor and you enjoy the finer things in life. And if your drink of choice is rum? You’re probably the life of the party.
The best food and alcohol pairings
Whether you’re relaxing at home after a long, tiring day of work or enjoying a Saturday night with friends, dinner isn’t quite the same without your favourite drink. Pairing the right drink with your food doesn’t just complete the meal, it elevates it. If you’re not quite sure what goes best with what, here’s a mini guide:
A thick, juicy steak? Pair it with a glass of red.
A hearty burger and fries? Reach for the beer to get the optimum amount of shiokness.
Spicy food? A chilled, low-alcohol, fruity white wine balances the spiciness.
Salty finger food? A margarita’s perfect.
A platter of decadent sweet treats? Time for that glass of white wine.
