6 of the best drinks to pair with tacos
Mexican restaurants have been on a roll lately so tacos are much more widely available than they used to be in the UK.
Following visits to two of London's most popular taco joints - Breddos Tacos and El Pastor - I've gained 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'. Absolutely delicious and perfect with the food.
You can’t beat the classic kind in my book. Spot on!
Hand in hand with the taco boom there has been an accompanying growth in the popularity of mezcal the more artisanal form of tequila. Both taquerias have extensive lists
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.
Generally chimes in well with the citrussy vibe of Mexican food
Better than a red IMHO. Breddos stocks the Domaine des Triennes rosé from Provence which I really like.
