5 Best Food Recipes to Pair With Whiskey


Blog / Thursday, October 24th, 2019

When it comes to whiskey, you can expect to forget all your troubles and all that intoxicating effects but what you might know about whiskey is surprising.

The idea of drinking whisky with food is considered beyond by many, but there is a growing interest in pairing whiskies with complementary foods.

The Scotch whisky industry has been keen to promote this. Single malts, pot-still whiskies, bourbons, and rye whiskies offer an interesting range of tastes and aromas, which are just as varied as wine. Jake Wallis Simons compares whiskies in bourbon casks to white wines, due to their lighter flavor, and those in sherry casks to red wines, with their greater fruitiness.

There are always possibilities, one said. If you’re planning on eating your delicious dinner with a fine glass of smooth whiskey, the best food flavors to match will be these three “S” which are sweet, smoky, and spicy. I recommend these five awesome dishes:

These BBQ Pork Spare Ribs are baked in the oven, until tender and falling off the bone. This is the easiest way to make ribs, and they’re so delicious! These oven ribs give grilled ribs and smoked ribs a serious run for their money. And I say that as someone who LOVES grilling and using the smoker.

We traded white rice for whole-grain quinoa and kicked out any processed ingredients for a new take on this comfort classic. Freeze an extra pan of this whole-grain main for kid-friendly comfort. To add more flavor to quinoa, try toasting it. Here’s how: After you’ve rinsed and drained the quinoa, heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and add the quinoa. Toast, stirring, until the grains begin to smell fragrant. Then, add the water and cook as normal.

This easy weeknight dinner will be on the table in under 30 minutes. The BBQ Sloppy Joe mixture will be enjoyed over a delicious piece of Texas toast and topped with cheddar cheese.

Classic burger elements become a fast, fun salad–a deconstructed take on a diner favorite. Instead of four burger patties, we cook just two, then chop and sprinkle them over the top. A handful of crushed potato chips adds crunch. Kick up the dressing with a pinch of ground red pepper.

Classic Sunday Pot Roast is an easy to make comfort food that is hearty, filling, and can easily feed the whole family. This recipe will work for a classic oven braise as well as in a slow cooker or Instant Pot.
