Have you ever tried burgers and cocktails? If not, it’s time for that ‘Eureka!’ moment.
When made with passion and love, burgers are the perfect dish. Imagine a fabulous well-cooked patty, smoked outside with the juicy pink centre: the fluffy buns and some fresh and crunchy greens with the best slice (or two) of cheese. Burgers are amazing, just on their own.
The only thing that makes a burger any better is the right cocktail to wash it down. If you like burgers as much as I do, and prefer a well-mixed cocktail, then we are on the same page. If you haven’t tried this combo yet, you are missing out on something very special.
What Cocktails Go Well With Burgers?
Burgers often have a lot going on – salty, spicy, tangy; all these flavours exist on the burger, so bartenders usually recommend keeping the cocktails simple when you pair them with your burgers.
A delicious burger needs something light and refreshing with enough flavour to stand up against all the other fixings.
Here are three of my favourite cocktails to pair with burgers:
Watermelon Rose Sangria
This sangria is simple and plays on watermelon’s refreshing taste. It is made up of Eristoff vodka, rose, watermelon, strawberry, lemon, soda, and the best part of this cocktail is it contains no additional sweeteners.
Watermelon Rose Sangria is a go-to summer cocktail! Simple, refreshing, sweet, but not too sweet, and easy to sip on.
It looks so beautiful, and trust me, when you have it with the cheesy, gooey burger, that will be heaven in your mouth.
Strawberry and Vanilla Mojito
Packed with strawberries and plenty of fizz, this white rum cocktail is amazing and a modern twist on a classic! A strawberry mojito is super easy to pull together!
This refreshing Latin cocktail has Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum, mint, strawberry, vanilla, lime, and soda.
It’s delicious and a fun twist on a classic minty mojito that complements burgers so well.
Alize Passionfruit Spritz
Comfort food and an exotic cocktail? – sounds good to me! Alize Passionfruit Spritz infuses premium French vodka with passion fruit nectar and all-natural flavours found in the world’s most exotic regions.
The taste is enhanced with Bacardi Carta Blanca, sparkling wine, mint, lemon, and soda.
Where can you have the best burger and cocktails?
The answer to this question is simple, Milky Lane! Milky Lane is an amazing burger hub – if you are a burger fan, you probably already know about Milky Lane. They serve the best burgers in Australia.
They don’t just have burgers; their menu is huge; they have varieties of burgers, sides, desserts, beverages like milkshakes, soda, cocktails, wine, shots – you name it, and you can have it.
I have just talked about the three cocktails above, but that does not mean their menu is just limited to those ones. They have more than 15 varieties of cocktails and a huge cocktail menu for a burger restaurant. Next time you eat a burger, don’t forget to order a cocktail!
