These dishes will perfectly complement any drink and add some delicious variety to your evening. Read on to discover our top ten picks for the perfect accompaniment to your next boozing session!

When it comes to side dishes, there’s truly something for everyone – even vegetarians! While many side dishes are heavy on meat and carbs, there are plenty veggie-based options out there that are perfect for pairing with your favourite booze. We have compiled a list with both vegetarian and meat options.

Spicy Jalapeño Poppers

Spicy Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño poppers are a classic party food and a great way to spice up any gathering. They are super easy to make and extremely flavourful! Simply stuff a jalapeño with cream cheese, wrap it in bacon, and bake until the bacon is crispy. For an extra bit of heat, try adding some chopped jalapeños to the cream cheese mixture. Serve with ranch dressing or your favourite dipping sauce and enjoy!

French Fries

French Fries are the perfect side dish for booze. They are salty, greasy, and crunchy- all the qualities that make them irresistible. When paired with a refreshing alcoholic beverage, they are even more delicious.

There are many ways to cook french fries, but the most important thing is to use fresh potatoes. You have to slice them into thin strips and fry them in hot oil until they are golden brown. Serve them with a dipping sauce or ketchup for an extra burst of flavour.

Cheese balls

There’s nothing quite like a good cheese ball to accompany your favourite alcoholic beverage. Cheese balls are easy to make and can be tailored to your specific taste. Here are some tips for making the perfect cheese ball:

– Start with high-quality cheese. A good rule of thumb is to use one pound of cheese for every three to four people you’re serving.

– Add mix-ins like herbs, spices, nuts, or fruit to give your cheese ball flavour and texture.

– Be sure to form the cheese into a tight ball so that it holds together well.

– Once you’ve formed the cheese ball, chill it in the refrigerator for at least an hour so that it firms up.

– When you’re ready to serve, dip the cheese in a dry flour mixture and dip them in an egg wash and dip them in breadcrumbs and deep fry until golden in colour.

– Serve them hot with some ketchup.

Masala peanuts

Masala peanuts are the perfect side dish for booze! They’re salty, spicy, and crunchy, and they go great with beer or any other alcoholic beverage.

1. To make masala peanuts, simply toss roasted peanuts with a spice blend of your choice. We like to use a combination of cumin, chilli powder, salt and garam masala, but you can use any spices you like.

2. Serve the peanuts in a small bowl or on a plate alongside your drinks. You can also squeeze a lemon wedge to up the flavor game. They will be gone in no time!


When it comes to hosting a party, few things are as classic – or as delicious – as pizza. Whether you’re serving up a classic cheese or a pepperoni pizza, or something a little more unique like a BBQ chicken or Hawaiian pizza, your guests are sure to love munching on some pizza. Plus, it’s the perfect food to pair with booze!

Some light snacks that along with Pizza and booze are:

Salads: A salad is a perfect way to start off a meal, and it can also be a great side dish for pizza. Just make sure to keep the dressing light so that it doesn’t overwhelm the flavour of the pizza.

Breadsticks: Breadsticks are always a hit, and they go great with dipping sauces like marinara or ranch dressing. Plus, they’re easy to eat with one hand so that your guests can still hold their drink in the other!

Fruit: A fruit salad is a great way to add some sweetness and freshness to your meal. And since pizza is usually pretty rich, the fruit will help balance things out. Fresh fruits also go along great with alcoholic beverages.

Veggies: If you want to add some more veggies to your meal, roasted vegetables are a great option. They’ll add some savoury flavour without being too heavy.

Tandoori chicken

1. Tandoori chicken is a classic Indian dish that pairs well with alcohol. It is typically made with chicken that has been marinated in a yoghurt and spice mixture, and then cooked in a tandoor (a type of clay oven). The result is a juicy, flavorful chicken that goes great with a cold beer or glass of wine.

2. If you’re looking for something a little different, try the tandoori lamb. The same marinade and cooking method can be used, but the lamb gives the dish a richer flavour that is perfect for sipping on a strong drink.

3. Another option is to make tandoori shrimp. This version of the dish is lighter and more refreshing, making it ideal for enjoying with a fruity cocktail or white wine.

Fish fingers

2. Serve your fish fingers with a dipping sauce of your choice. A tartar sauce or aioli would be perfect for dipping!
