Popcorn, Booze and Food
We were invited last month to a Popcorn Pairing at Back Label Wines in NYC featuring the best popcorn from @Pop Karma.
It was so interesting because we never thought of pairing alcohol with popcorn as part of our summer time gathering.
Our Favorite Pairings:
1. Kyoto Flavor Popcorn has a great umnami taste serve with Cold Saké, this is great if you are having friends over and decide to cater sushi from your favorite restaurant.
2. Any BBQ lovers in the house?
After you chow down on your favorite cue either homemade or from a restaurant, this pairing is great Carmel Corn with Mr. Katz's Rock and Rye Whiskey, our friend Patrick from Back Label Wines serves it on the rocks with orange bitters and this by far had everyone wanting fifths.
3. It is hot yet you want Italian food, the perfect dinner is a cold antipasti plate served with a Nino Costa Nebbiolo Red Wine with White Truffle Popcorn. Our Guests loved this combination.
4. Our last dish with pick is a cerviche dinner with avacado crema and Mezcal Vago Elote Margarita.
Not only are the combos great, your guests will have a great time, but check out the actual @Pop Karma store at 92 Orchard Street in the LES of Manhattan.
And @backlabelwines for all of your alchocol needs.
Cheers to good food and great businesses!
