Beverage Pairings

  • Egg- and cheese-based appetizers like Petite Quiches pair well with light, crisp white wines like chardonnay or pinot grigio.

  • Dry, sparkling wines like champagne or prosecco are a must with our Champagne Collection of Seafood Crab Cakes and Mini Cheese Souffles.

  • Make your holiday brunch even more festive with Nancy's Entrée Quiches and a refreshing champagne cocktail like French 75.

  • Nothing goes with delicious deli meats and cheeses like a cold beer. Next time friends come over to watch the game, serve an assortment of microbrewed beer with a hearty assortment of Deli Spirals.

  • Create one or two signature themed drinks for your evening, and customize them with a special name (try our Candy Cane Cocktail recipe for the holidays). Specialty cocktails are fun and festive, and can be less expensive than stocking a full bar.

  • For warm weather gatherings, make a refreshing pitcher of real lemonade using the juice of 12 lemons, two quarts of cold water and sugar to taste. Submerge large sprigs of fresh mint in the pitcher for extra zing.

  • Create a simple yet beautiful ice ring to keep your white wine cool on the buffet table. Just cut the top off a milk carton, put your bottle inside, and surround it with water and colorful fruits like blueberries or cranberries. Freeze for several hours, and peel the carton off—voila!

    Don't forget to have non-alcoholic drinks on hand for designated drivers, expectant moms or people who don't drink.
