The good news is you don’t have to be a chef to make delicious combinations of gin and food. Next time you don’t know what to eat while you drink your gin tonic, remember to check this article’s tips:
Seafood never fails
Are there any seafood lovers around? If there’s a flavour that complements in perfection gin, it’s this one. But there’s more - smoked salmon is also a great option, because the fat in smoked salmon has a rich flavour that goes really well with gin. For an extra freshness touch, add a little lemon juice in the salmon.
On other hand, shrimp is also a great accompaniment for gin and mussels are another great option.
Fruits, paté and cheese
Why not add some delicious berries? Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and cranberries are great suitors, inside and outside the glass. The most refined tastes will also love to drink gin tonic with some paté. And speaking of refined, try cheeses too. The more intense in their flavour, the better they pair with gin.
Popcorn and chocolate
Why not add some popcorn and make a movie session? This is an unlikely snack that you can also add to this list. And the more caramelized the popcorn are, the better. We also have good news for the chocolate lovers. A few chocolate squares are a great company to enjoy while drinking a gin tonic.
These are only a few suggestions of food that goes well with gin. It turns out, this is a very versatile and food-friendly drink. Next time you have a gin in your hand and you’re hungry, you won’t be missing in options of delicious food to taste.
