DRY’s Favorite Winter Recipe Pairings

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Happy holidays! We’ve rounded up a few winter recipes from our favorite food bloggers, all of which pair nicely with DRY flavors.

Pear

Pear DRY goes hand-in-hand with winter green salads and savory blue cheese dishes. We’re fans of Love and LemonsWinter Kale Salad and The Noshery‘s Roasted butternut squash with pears, onions and blue cheese.

Juniper Berry

Fancy a bottle of Juniper Berry DRY? Make sure to try it with your favorite warm mushroom, mussel or potato dishes. These recipes are great places to start:

Cherry

For all things decadent (specifically with chocolate and/or almonds), Cherry DRY is your flavor. Joy the Baker has dark chocolate, pistachio and smoked sea salt cookies and chocolate coconut almond scones that are the perfect match.

Vanilla Bean

Vanilla Bean DRY fans love pairing it with ice cream, but did you know that it tastes just as awesome with roasted chicken or baked apple dishes? Try Smitten Kitchen‘s buttermilk roast chicken and The Amateur Gourmet‘s apple cobbler  with your next Vanilla Bean DRY!
