Great food and beverage combinations

Unread postby FUDU » Wed Nov 05, 2008 8:07 pm

What are some of your favorite combination of food and drink. Can be food with food, drink with drink and food with drink...

Without question milk and chocolate go ridiculously good together, as do Reese Cups and a glass of milk.

PBJ and milk.

A Coke and a piece of pizza.

Great pasta and wine for sure.

New York Peppermint Patty and ice cold glass of water.
Criminals in this town used to believe in things...honor, respect.

This may not count as a beverage, but to me, nothing beats a grilled cheese sandwich with Campbell's Tomato Soup on a cold wintery day.

If I have to pick a 'real' beverage, I'm going to have to go to my Irish heritage and say a tall Guinness with a corned beef sandwich (Bonus points of it's on St Patty's Day).

Garden Grown Tomatoes, sliced on hot italian bread w/mayo

Hot italian bread slathered with still simmering sauce on a Sunday morning.

Grilled Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms ,italian sausage on italian rolls.

White Clam sauce and linguine.

Is that a big enough lobby for italian bread or what?

Crawfish and an Abita Golden beer.


Hot Damn!!!! Really any boiled seafood with beer works (I'm more preferable to Abita Amber or Restoration Ale, but Golden works too).

I also agree with....

Reese Cups and a glass of milk
,
A Coke and a piece of pizza.

and
wings.

beer.

Tell me about Booker's sir. I'm a big Bulleit, Wild Turkey, Maker's Mark or Beam guy. Where's Booker's fall on the list?

Wild Turkey and Maker's Mark for the manhattan's/ Bulleit and Beam are cheaper and are fine with coke/mix.

You can look at their site here
http://www.smallbatch.com/lpa

Designed for the upper premium market, they're a response from bourbon producers to the success of single malt whisky. More high end then WT, Beam, etc. We began selling these in back in '01-'02 when I used to work at The Ritz Carlton. I found/find them VERY smooth and excellent for sipping either with dinner or after.

For as good as any of these small batch bourbons are, I still go back to my first love...

For some reason, I always crave a tall glass of cold milk when I eat spaghetti.

Yes!
Most people cringe when I tell them that this is a great combo.
Just about anytime I have milk I'll put a tall glass of it in the freezer just long enough NOT to freeze it.
