Whether you’re back to dining out or still enjoying your local favorites with curbside to-go or delivery services, sipping on a delicious cocktail with your meal always takes things to the next level.
It’s often tempting to order the daily drink special or your favorite go-to cocktail with every meal, but if you play it safe every time, you may miss out on a tasty new flavor profile or the perfect complement to your date night dinner.
Bottled in Bond’s Jasin Burt encourages patrons to drink outside the box by switching up their usual drink order in favor of a fun food + cocktail pairing. The cocktail parlour’s perfectly balanced libations and tasty southern fare are sure to be a match made in heaven, in-house or on the go.
Here are some delicious pairings you can pick up today:
Brighten Seafood with Citrus
One of the greatest ways to highlight seafood is with a fresh squeeze of lemon. Bottled in Bond carries this classic flavor profile through to their cocktails with the Acapulco Gold, a bold, gin-based cocktail with hints of rosemary, ginger, and lemon.
The Acapulco compliments the fresh, Pan Seared Scallops’ delicate flavor and balances the richness of the crispy bacon and Brussels served on the side. You’ll also get a bonus two-for-one pairing here, as the Acapulco’s bright yellow turmeric cordial pairs perfectly with the other side dish: a creamy butternut squash puree.
Enjoy Roasted Chicken with Bubbly
Bottled in Bond’s roasted chicken is the epitome of comfort food and the perfect winter meal. Served alongside a wild rice pilaf with cranberries, squash, and Brussels, this classic dish pairs perfectly with the bright, bubbly, BIB-classic Laters, Baby. The fresh fruit flavors in the cocktail bring acidity to the chicken, while a splash of brut champagne lightens up this rich dinner dish.
Enjoy roasted chicken and a Later’s Baby from the comfort of your couch thanks to Bottled in Bond’s to-go Adult Pops and curbside dinner menu.
Pair Pork with a Classic Cocktail
Last but not least, enjoy a modern twist on a classic pairing with Bottled in Bond’s latest entree offering.
The thick-cut Peppercorn Crusted Pork Chop brings southern flair with mashed potatoes, shaved Brussels, and house-made fish caramel sauce, all topped with rich, crispy bacon.
Since red meat pairs perfectly with bourbon, try the new Peppercorn Pork with a prohibition-style Old Fashioned, also available as an Adult Pop for at-home consumption or in-house at the bar.
Bonus: Tame Your Sweet Tooth
Don’t forget about dessert! If you prefer your food and drink in a single, perfect bite, we recommend the classic Bourbon Pecan Pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
For an after-dinner cocktail complement to your favorite sweet treat, try BIB’s velvety cheesecake with a Chai-Espresso Cocktail. This modern twist on the classic after-dinner coffee features chai-infused vodka and cold brew espresso that’s sure to pack a punch.
Take Date Night To-Go
No matter which cocktail and entree pairing tickles your fancy, you can enjoy Bottled in Bond’s delicious southern fare and refreshing libations wherever you prefer.
