Knowing how to marry a drink to a dish is the art of creating a truly harmonious culinary experience. Whether you’re a wine, cocktail or non-alcoholic drink lover, every meal can be enhanced with the right choice of beverage. And to complete this experience, what better than to use the refined glassware of Cristal d’Arques Paris? In this article, let’s dive into the art of choosing the perfect drink to accompany each dish, while adding a touch of elegance with Cristal d’Arques Paris glassware. Light and Refreshing Appetizers For light starters such as green salads, seafood or tartars, opt for equally refreshing drinks. A dry white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc or a Vermentino can perfectly balance the light flavors and tart notes of these dishes. Serve them in elegant stemmed glasses Macassar. Rich and Hearty Dishes Dishes rich in flavor and texture, such as roasts, casseroles or spicy dishes, call for fuller-bodied wines. Opt for tannic reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot to accompany these dishes. Serve them in red wine glasses such as our collection Wine Emotions to highlight the deep nuances of these wines. Spicy and International Cuisine If you’re planning spicy dishes like Asian or Indian cuisine, opt for off-dry white wines or sparkling wines. Slightly sweet or bubbly notes can help soften the spice while balancing the flavors. Serve them in wine glasses from our collection Ultime, highlighting the sparkling hues of the drink. Sweet and Dessert Pairings Sweet desserts require drinks that are not overpowered by their sweetness. Dessert wines like Sauternes or Muscat can harmoniously complement sweet flavors. Showcase them in stylish stemware like our collection Lady Diamond for a pleasant viewing experience. Creative Cocktails If you opt for creative cocktails, pair them with light dishes and appetizers. For example, a fruity cocktail made with gin or vodka goes well with appetizers. Serve them in our cups Architecte for a classy presentation. Non-Alcoholic Beverages For those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages, consider options such as sparkling water with lemon slices, flavored iced teas, or fruit infusions. Serve them in Kwarx glasses Rendez-Vous for extra charm. By choosing the drink according to its dish, you can create a culinary experience that will delight the taste buds of your guests. With the refined glassware of Cristal d’Arques Paris, you will add a touch of elegance to every meal. Whether you opt for a carefully selected wine, a creative cocktail or a refreshing non-alcoholic drink, the harmony between the dish and the drink is the key to creating memorable moments around the table.
