Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal pairing for shellfish

    When having shellfish, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • Enjoy grilled burger with Margarita

    For an elevated experience, pair your grilled burger with Margarita. This combination works particularly well because this cocktail balances the spice and salt of the burger.


  • Pair Vieux Carre with 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.


Fun facts

  • The history of chocolate chip cookies

    Ruth Graves Wakefield is widely recognized as the first person to ever make the now-famous chocolate chip cookies.

  • July = American festival
