Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and the key to enjoying all that L-Tryptophan and family bonding is having the right libations. No matter where you stand on white vs. dark meat or the Macy’s Parade vs. NFL Football, Minibar can deliver drinks for which you are grateful.
Choose an American Sparkling Wine to show off your patriotism and give the celebration a festive vibe. Alternatively, Rosé’s lower alcohol content and fresh fruitiness also offer a great start to the long night. These options will complement lighter fare, but might be overpowered by the flavors once the main event begins.
If you’re looking for a red, the balanced acidity and fruit undertones make Pinot Noir the perfect partner for your turkey. White fans should go for a creamy California Chardonnay to pair with the decadent, buttery flavors of mashed potatoes and gravy. The additional perk of both of these options is they’re readily available at a variety of prices and will be familiar to even your pickiest aunt or uncle.
Try a tawny-style Port to juxtapose and compliment the spicier flavors of pumpkin pie, or a Riesling to compliment an apple pie’s sweetness.
