What Are the Best Beverages to Pair With Spicy Wings? January 1, 2019

What Are the Best Beverages to Pair With Spicy Wings?, Danbury, Connecticut

When relaxing with friends or watching the game this weekend, a delicious plate of wings is a must. If spicy foods burn your throat, you’ll want a cold drink to help balance out the heat. While beverages such as soda and water can actually make the burning worse, there are other options worth trying. The following are some of the best drinks to cool you down while you’re eating wings with friends.

3 Drinks to Order With Your Spicy Wings

1. Milk

When it comes to balancing out the effects of spice, nothing cools you down quite like milk. The fat in milk bonds with the spicy food molecules and washes them off your tongue. So, when you’re trying an extra spicy dish, ask for a tall glass of this beverage to go with it. 

2. Beer

A cold beer is a game day staple, plus, this drink can help cool you down when eating spicy foods. However, for the best effects, it’s important to choose the right brew. A beer with a high alcohol content makes the spicy flavor more powerful. Instead, opt for a light lager or hoppy beer, such as an IPA, to wash away the spice.

3. Milkshakes

wingsWhile you may not want to drink a milkshake alongside your wings, it can make for a tasty dessert. The milk in the shake will wash away any spicy flavors while the coldness will cool down your mouth. The sugar in the milkshake also soaks up the spice, so if you’re in the mood, ask for extra whipped cream.
