What to Drink With What You Eat

While most wine drinkers spend a good amount of their time thinking about what foods go with their favorite beverage, other food/drink pairings often go overlooked. Most people go as far as to pair a Mexican beverage with a burrito or throw down a Guinness with their corned beef and cabbage, that's not the only extent your beverage pairing can take.

For those who are interested in expanding their pairing horizons, we've found What to Drink with What You Eat: The Definitive Guide to Pairing Food with Wine, Beer, Spirits, Coffee, Tea - Even Water - Based on Expert Advice from America's Best Sommeliers. The title is quite a mouthful, but we like the sound of what it offers - except that whole coffee/tea/water nonsense.
