Getting the perfect mix of food and drink can be a challenge, but putting in the effort can elevate your meal to the next level. Pairing brings out the fine, delicate flavors of both the dish and the alcohol—just like how Chardonnay's buttery feel can further highlight the creamy taste of chicken marsala, or how the smokey, charred oak notes in bourbon go fantastically with a well-cooked brisket. Your cooking deserves that same complementary elevation.
If you've already taken the trouble to go over our article "Spring Grilling: Lamb Chop Cooking Tips and Tricks with The MeatStick MiniX" and are planning to grill some juicy lamb chops to perfection, you should find the best liquor to bring out their richness. Here are two everyday—and two unique—liquors you can pair with your next serving.
This ancient Middle Eastern spirit can be a marvelous addition to your dinner. It consists of crushed white grapes that are fermented and distilled, showered with crumbled anise seeds, and distilled again. In fact, you can boast how Arak is one of the oldest distilled drinks in the region—or you can let the drink do the talking. Its appearance already has a showmanship quality: transparent at lukewarm, it turns into a milky white when chilled. A great choice to pair with your lamb is the Persian Empire Arak Saggi, specially made of sultana raisins. The fat of your lamb chops will do great in balancing out Arak’s high alcohol content as well as sharpen its pure, subtle flavor. Just make sure you serve your Arak on the rocks.
You've already taken the steps to make a lovely dinner. Find the best liquor that goes with your lamb chops, and you'll help your next meal graduate from good to unforgettable.
