Gone are the days when cocktails need to have a complicated relationship with food. In fact, new culinary inspired libations can enhance your meal. Enjoy a refreshing gin drink with hints of cucumber, for example, with a spring salad or a warm tomato soup. A vodka martini with ripe fruit and herbs is the perfect complement to savory lamb chops. And, if you’re looking to spice things up, sip on something infused with hot pepper or smoked chilies alongside a creamy lobster macaroni and cheese. Don’t relegate cocktails to before or after dinner — let them share the spotlight with your favorite foods for a whole new dining experience.
