Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Freixenet Mia

An original semi-dry white elaborated with local varieties from north-east Spain that are usually used for the local sparkling wines, the cavas. It smells flowers, tropical fruits and melon!

+- 20$ Hugel Gewurztraminer 2013

The Hugel house is a solid reference from Alsace. The gewurztraminer has intense hints of litchi, roses and ginger for an explosive pairing!

Dominus Vobiscum Blanche, Microbrasserie Charlevoix

With its citrus fruits and yeast flavors, this Belgian white beer will emphasize the citrus fruits used in this recipe. It also offers a light acidity that will cut the sugar that you just licked from your fingers… allowing you to take one more drumstick… again and again!
