Nothing says summer like enjoying some delicious food and drinks on a restaurant patio. Many of us opt for a tried and true glass of rosé or a beer to go along with our meal, but if you’re feeling adventurous, why not order a cocktail instead. Here are some food and cocktail pairings to elevate your summer dining experience to the next level.
Hamburger & Long Island Iced Tea
Trade your beer for a refreshing Long Island Iced Tea next time you order a burger. You’ll find a hearty burger balances out the hefty alcohol content of a Long Island Iced Tea perfectly.
Fajitas & Margaritas
This Mexican favourite is too often forgotten. The sour lime notes of the margarita mixed with the medley of flavours in the fajitas are a match made in heaven.
Shrimp Stir-Fry & Cosmopolitan
Instead of a go-to white wine, try out a crisp cosmopolitan. It’s the perfect complement to stir-fry shrimp and fresh green vegetables.
Salad & Vodka Martini
A chopped salad with cucumber, pickles, or olives tossed in a light dressing pairs wonderfully with a vodka martini. The simplicity of the combination really allows the flavours to come through.
Steak & Caesar
You no longer have to limit your enjoyment of a Caesar to brunch. The tomato-based drink will compliment your meal nicely and you’ll be surprised how well the spicy kick will enhance the flavours of the meat.
