6 of the best drinks to pair with tacos

It’s a little ironic that just as Trump is planning a wall to keep the Mexicans OUT we cant get enough of Mexican food at the moment. Especially tacos.

I’ve been to two of London’s new openings lately - Breddos Tacos and El Pastor which have given me an insight into the best pairings for this incredibly moreish street food. And while there’s no reason not to drink wine it’s not my top choice.


Lager would be the usual go-to but Breddos has their own full-flavoured 5.4% version, Zirkus from Magic Rock, which they describe as a 'tropical lager' (right). Absolutely delicious and perfect with the food.


You can’t beat the classic kind in my book. Spot on!


If you want to be on trend. Never quite got it but it is now a bit of a ‘thing’. Both taquerias have extensive lists

Aguas frescas

I drank a tepache at El Pastor which is described as ‘lightly fermented pineapple juice with spices. Refreshing and not too sweet. Not necessarily alcohol-free but very low. Here's how to make it at home.

Sauvignon Blanc

Generally chimes in well with the citrussy vibe of Mexican food

Dry rosé

Better than a red IMHO. Breddos stocks La Trienne from Provence which I really like.
