Love your vino? Aside from your usual cheese and chocolate pairings, why not try something new? Here are some of our favorite #MoreThanTheUsual combinations:
1. Wine and pizza
If cheese is something you just can’t give up, then pair your glass with an order of your favorite pizza. The wine’s sweetness will surely complement the earthy flavors of sausage and mushroom, the herby taste of tomato sauce, and the richness of melted cheese. (Yes, it is making us hungry AF, too!)
2. Wine and street food
Is there anything that screams adventurous more than this pairing? Go with your turo-turo staples—fish ball, squid ball, kikiam, isaw, betamax, or whatever floats your boat. Serve it on the fanciest plate you own, and pour yourself some vino. How’s that for a Friday night in?
3. Wine and ice cream
Soda floats are for kids. Real women go for wine floats instead! It may sound appalling, but this unusual combination really excites the taste buds. We recommend red wine with vanilla ice cream, sparkling wine with pistachio, and white wine with peanut butter.
4. Wine and Adele’s latest album
Just imagine this: you, a bottle of wine, a dim room, and Adele’s songs playing in the background. Doesn’t that just sound so *heartbreakingly* inviting?
5. Wine and painting
Channel your inner Vincent van Gogh while having a sip of your favorite vino. It’s a really great way to get your creative juices flowing and de-stress after a tiring week at work. Plus, you never know what a wee bit of alcohol can do to your creative juices.
If this is something you’ve been wanting to do, we have news for you! This August, Granny Goose is teaming up with the guys from Sip & Gogh, the country’s first paint & sip art studio, for the second leg of their #MoreThanTheUsual Experience.
