Pairing Drinks with Tacos
It’s no secret that tacos and drinks pair well together. No matter what your go-to beverage is, you can find a drink that pairs perfectly with tacos. Read on for advice for pairing drinks with tacos.
If beer is your go-to beverage, pair your taco with an American Pale Ale (APA). These beers complement the flavors of chicken, pork, fish, and beef because of their bitter hops and malt. To make this combination even further, pick an APA with a touch of citrus, like lime or orange, and pair this drink with an authentic taco with cilantro and lime.
Now if wine is more your style, you can pair your taco with wine to enjoy a flavorful combination. One trick is to match the color of your wine with the color of your meat. For example, if you’re eating a beef taco, opt for red wine. If you’re enjoying a seafood taco, white wine is a better-suited pairing. The less sweet the wine, the better it will pair with your tacos. Red rose and sauvignon blanc are excellent options.
Pairing your taco with a cocktail is a special treat. It goes without saying that tequila is the go-to liquor for tacos. Whether you opt for a tequila cocktail or a margarita, you’re sure to have an excellent pairing on your hands.
