Organizing a fried-food party seems not such a tough shell to crack. For one thing, you can hardly make a mistake planning the menu – everyone loves a good piece of fried chicken or fish. However, the main question is – how to find a perfect drink?
That’s right. While planning a meal, people literally get stuck with the choice of a suitable beverage. Fried food is associated with fun and partying, hence, the drink should perfectly fit into the atmosphere. The main criteria for picking the right option are:
- Choosing between contrast and continuity. See, you can go down two roads here: whether the drink provides completely another feeling (if the food is spicy, the drink should be light) or continue the effect of the food taste.
- Sweetness. A drink with a little sugary taste is usually nice, but it’s not always the best option for the fried food. The best option is mixing both sweet and spicy flavors which would play well with different dishes.
- Attractiveness. When it comes to fried food dinner, it’s all about looks. You want the drink to be bright and colorful so it would look perfect on any Instagram profile (yes, it matters). That’s why usual choices like beer are not the best option.
Okay, so the main thing is – be creative. Kyle and Rachel Ford, the founders of the Ford Mixology Lab, recommend to improvise, experiment with tastes and flavors. You can make drinks yourself and take all the responsibility for the result. On the other hand, you could go to a cocktail bar and don’t have to worry about possible failure.
