Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Kentucky 75 with fried chicken

    To elevate your fried chicken experience, we recommend some Kentucky 75 to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this cocktail cuts the fat of the fried skin.

  • Vieux Carre with your heavy meat dish

    When considering how to best enjoy your heavy meat dish, we would highlight how well a glass of Vieux Carre complements the dish as it cuts through the heaviness of the dish.


  • A great drink pairing for grilled burger

    Knowing what to pair with grilled burger can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some cocktail, particularly a glass of Margarita. This, sweet, cocktail balances the spicy and salty grilled burger.
