Making gumbo this weekend...what should I serve to drink? Couldn't post this in wine, beer or spirits as I wasn't sure which would be best.
A rough-hewn, raw and brawling red would suffice just fine.
That's fine for us adults, but I serve the kids Barq's Root Beer
I would take the Barq's too and I am adult. But only if I can find the diet one since I can't have the real deal when it comes to soda. :(
Abita beers work for me.
a nice cold lager, nothing fancy...Abita would be appropriate
Hamden minds think alike....
HA! I was also thinking some cheap table red, alla Justin Wilson, "I guaranteee"
What kind of Gumbo? ~ Served in what setting?
Help us Help you....
If not beer,or a rough-ish wine, then I default to milk..with a little ice in it as my father always did.
To paraphrase the late, great Cajun chef, Justin Wilson:
"People ask me, Joostan, what kind of wine should I have with this dish, red or white?"
"I look at them and say, you should drink any kind of wine YOU LIKE! (while taking a big swig)."
Awww, thanks for the memories, Bob Dobalina!Beer, totally. Maybe a mint julep for the folks who like their bbq smoky and their liquor hard. :)
Watching that show on PBS after shoveling the driveway in New England made a BIG impression on me.
"I like to cook with a lot of wine."
"People ask me, Joostan, what kind of wine you like to cook with?"
"I say, what kind you got?"
I serve iced tea or a hoppy pilsner.
Thanks for the suggestions. I am making Jimmy Bannos' chicken sausage gumbo that he serves at Heaven on Seven in Chicago. I miss that spicy, thick version. Next time you are in Chicago stop and give it a try.
Abita beer. Anything else is just wrong!
I agree with others, Abita. I like Turbodog, and when they have it their Mardi Gras Bock.
