Drink pairing tips

  • Pair Margarita with grilled burger

    When considering what goes best with grilled burger, we recommend a glass of Margarita, it truly complements the dish as it balances the spice and salt of the burger.


  • Kentucky 75 and fried chicken


    When enjoying a fried chicken dish, it’s recommended you pair it with a glass ofvibrant Kentucky 75, a cocktail that cuts the fat of the fried skin.

  • The ideal drink pairing for shellfish

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for shellfish can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Chardonnay. This, strong and acidic, white wine balances the creamy shellfish.
