Soup is an important dish of every meal and a bowl of soup provides a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and fats as well as the vitamins and minerals. It is healthy, no doubt, but that’s not the only reasons why soup is good. You can pair it with a drink!
The sparkling wine bubbles allows even the thinnest soup a velvety and a fresh flavor accent. Dry or semi-dry it’s just a matter of taste.
The beer‘s carbonation is well suited to meet the soup consistency. Even creamy and rich soups taste good with beer. Tasty soups, such as mushroom soups goes well with the dark ale in Belgian style or a moderate bitter IPA , APA or a bitter British style. For spicy soup, such as tom kha kai, serves a light lager with a little bitterness or a wheat beer.
To fish soups, fresh & fruity white wines fits perfectly, or rosé wines aswell. If you have meaty soup in your bowl, a soft & berry red wine is an option or a less full-bodied pinot noir.
Sherry or Madeira
These wines are under-estimating drinks to soups. The combination will be even better if the drink is also included as an ingredient in soup. Mushroom soups goes very well with dry sherry or dry madiera.
More than sure you will find various drinks suitable for soups. The red goes well with meat-dominated, white and sparkling to the mild fish soups. The bitter beer with tasty meaty soups. Wheat beer when you serve a spicy soup..
