A true crowd pleaser for a cozy Sunday Funday Football party – Homemade Guacamole! Now, what to pair it with…
When pairing, I would keep in mind the dominant flavors and textures it has. Avocado is rich in flavor and soft/creamy in texture while the lime and lemon juice offers citrus flavor and acidity. It seems that a crisp white wine would be the best thing to serve with this and is also easily paired with other game day appetizers.
Suggested White Wines:
Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Fume Blanc Screw Cap 2009 - A cross between a crisp Sauvignon Blanc and a buttery/creamy Chardonnay, oaky flavors with a bit of a grassy finish. $16 retail with a screw cap – easy access at the game or even at home with your anxious friends!
Casal Garcia Vinho Verde Branco White 2010 – Extremely bright and refreshing! $8 retail and is the perfect crowd pleaser for an informal Sunday Night Football get together!
La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2009 – Butterscotch and citrusy notes are perfectly paired with guacamole and a salty chip! $20 retail and will get everyone ready to cheer on their favorite team!
Enjoy and Go Patriots!
