Eggnog all around and raise a glass -- the winter holidays are here! It’s the time we allow ourselves to appreciate the best of what we have: our families, our health, our friends and hopefully a little more peace on earth than usual.
Of course, celebrations deserve great food and drink — and the right drink. Think of a cheeseburger with a big glass of grapefruit juice versus one with a cola and you’ll get the basic idea behind food-beverage pairing.
Here are some big-picture ideas to get you started, using our favorite Crescent holiday appetizers as the food to match.
May your holiday cheer be especially cheery this year!
