What to drink with gumbo?

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.

  1. 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. :(

    2. Abita beers work for me.

      1. a nice cold lager, nothing fancy...Abita would be appropriate

          1. If not beer,or a rough-ish wine, then I default to milk..with a little ice in it as my father always did.
