It’s football season, which means it’s the perfect time of year to head to the bar and enjoy some wings and drinks on the weekend with your friends and family. With the big TVs, great atmosphere, and delicious food, you may be wondering which cocktails go best with your buffalo specials. Here are a few favorites to order next time.
Perfect Mixed Drink & Wing Pairings
If you like to pack in the heat, a martini is the perfect drink to pair with spicy buffalo wings to cut through the salty hotness and help cleanse your palate for other flavors like honey barbecue or zesty lime. Add a few briny olives to complement the wings, as well.
If you like teriyaki wings, the mint in a mojito is a perfect pairing. Mint pairs really well with Chinese or Japanese cuisine and provides an interesting contrast to the sweet and sticky sauces that usually accompany Asian dishes.
3. Beer Cocktail
You may be familiar with your regular pale ale, but a beer cocktail takes the world of wings to a whole new level. Try a black and tan, which is a pale ale with a dark beer, or a michelada, which is beer mixed with lemon juice, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. These pair great with zesty or chipotle BBQ wings.
4. Bourbon & Coke
Bourbon and coke go together like wings and football! Sweet soft drinks pair well with salty burgers and hot wings, and the bourbon cuts through the carbonation and makes the drink go down smooth. Definitely a classic and excellent pairing.
