Some of the best food pairings with drinks and Christmas dishes

These Christmas meals go very well with certain drinks, from gin to cocktails. Find the best food pairings with Christmas dishes.


Shrimps/ prawns: a food that makes the task easier at Christmas and is a perfect entry. It is recommended to accompany them with a Gin and Tonic with a slice of grapefruit. The tonic in the cocktail will excite your taste buds and refresh your palate.



Christmas ham: vermouth, ginger ale. Low-alcohol drinks. This combination goes very well with a piece of orange as a garnish for the drink.



Baked vegetables: when you share with more than 4 people a punch resolves in quantities. Vegetables will go well with a rum and citrus fruit punch.


Mince pie: we recommend combining the spicy sweetness of meatloaf with the delicacy and fruity, woody side of a Brandy. A brandy that will also serve to create cocktails like a Sidecar and if we add an orange and cognac liqueur like Grand Marnier, it is perfect.



Gingerbread: for desserts, if you have a gingerbread you can taste a rich wine, like a Muscat. Rich and sweet, but serve with caution, about 30 ml will be enough.


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
