Delicious Mexican Food Pairings with Moscato
We’ve been talking a lot about our favorite food pairings this year and we’d be remiss not to feature Mexican food pairings! Full of rich flavors and spices, Mexican food pairs in delicious harmony with sweet wines like Electra Moscato and Red Electra Moscato. Read on for some of our favorite Mexican dish pairings, then treat your palate to a meal that’s marvelously flavorful.
Birria is traditionally served at weddings, quinceañeras and other celebrations, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate any ordinary day with this dish that’s rich in tangy, smoky flavor. Light, crisp and refreshing, Electra Moscato is a fantastic balancing accompaniment to the heartiness of birria. Squeeze fresh lime over your birria for brightening acidity that pairs well with the peach-melon-citrus in Electra.
Chicken, beef, pork or easy & cheesy, however you enjoy your quesadilla, Red Electra Moscato is ready to enjoy right along with it!
Red Electra’s cherry-berry-pomegranate flavors and light spritz make a tasty combo with the seasoned meat of your choice and all of that cheesy goodness.
Speaking of cheese … of course enchiladas made the list of Mexican food and Moscato pairings we love!
Tangy sauce and spicy salsa need a wine that won’t overpower all of those delicious flavors. Electra Moscato’s balanced acidity and crisp sweetness pair wonderfully well with enchilada dishes.
We could mole all day with this yummy Mexican food pairing! Chicken mole features a rich sauce that usually includes chocolate in its list of tasty ingredients. Red Electra’s sweet berry profile goes perfectly with chocolate flavoring, and will enhance your mole meal experience for a total treat for your tastebuds.
