When choosing a summer cocktail to pair with barbecued foods, the type of barbecue sauce used is more important than the type of meat or vegetable. "Spices can react tricky depending on the preparation, as can citrus and acid. Finding ways to complement these flavors is crucial," said mixologist Davin Affrunti. "My initial goal would be to find something that subtly cuts through the spices, yet still leaves a refreshing zing at the end. I'm thinking something like ginger beer would be a great go-to."
