Texans have never been afraid of bold flavors, and lately, the Dallas-Fort Worth bar and restaurant scene has been a hot spot for new and creative pairings.
Yes, steak is usually a great match for, well, most spirits, but explore beyond the beaten path, and you’ll find more unexpected ways to enjoy your favorite beverage. Take Highland Park whisky: the medium-bodied Scotch whisky lends itself beautifully to food pairings, from aromatic curries and wasabi-spiked sushi to smoked meats and fried chicken. With complex yet wildly harmonious notes of dried fruits, honey, oranges, and a hint of smokiness, it’s as versatile at the dinner table as on a bar stool.
So move over, meat and potatoes — we’re here for more offbeat pairings. (We’ll still go for the steaks, though. We are Texans, after all.)
