The perfect drink pairings for your summer BBQ

The perfect drink pairings for your summer BBQ

The sun’s out and the grill’s just as warm. You’ve got dinner marinating and you might even have an apron on deck for when things get messy.

When you need a quick and easy drink to keep you hydrated while complementing your meal, use the following as a guide:

Kebabs and iced tea

Kebabs usually consist of meat skewers seasoned with spices, like cumin and coriander. A tasty pairing suggestion for this dish is iced tea, which you can easily make with regular tea and a couple of ice cubes.

Try Harney and Sons Tropical Green Tea or Raspberry Tea for something a little unconventional.

Steak and cold brew

If you haven’t had a cold brew coffee on a warm day, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how refreshing you’ll find a cup of joe. Pair Jamaica Cold Brew Coffee with a rare steak for a cornucopia of unexpected, earthy flavours.

Sausages and sparkling water

With a dish as greasy as sausages, you might want to throw back a cool drink that not only tickles the throat and clears the palate, but is better for you than a Coke. After all, you’ve already eaten three sausages!

Dasani makes delicious sparkling water in lime and black cherry. Try them separately, or combine them in a cherry-lime cocktail.

Veggies and flavoured water

Whether you’re a vegetarian or simply health-conscious, have your veggie dish accompanied by a good-for-the-body beverage. You could drink plain water or, if that’s not to your liking, add some excitement with flavour crystals.

TrueCitrus crystals come in five varieties (orange, lemon, lime, lemonade, and raspberry lemonade) and don’t add any artificial flavours or preservatives to your water. At only 10 calories per unit, you can’t go wrong.
