5 Drinks to Pair with Sushi

5 Drinks to Pair with Sushi

Sushi is available in a variety of styles and flavors. But it’s surprisingly easy to pair any roll with your favorite alcoholic drinks for a balanced and flavorful meal.

Here are the top five drinks you should consider ordering the next time you’re out for sushi.

Top 5 Sushi Pairing Drinks

  1. Japanese Beer

    Instead of going with a dark and heavy beer, choose a light brand like Sapporo. This iconic Japanese beer pairs well with any roll and won’t overpower the sushi’s flavor.

  2. Sake

    Sake is a tasty, fermented rice beverage. While sushi isn’t traditionally paired with sake, it’s still a flavorful combo. Try a dry variety, such as Hakkaisan’s Tokubetsu Junmai.

  3. Prosecco

    Prosecco is a bubbly white wine that isn’t too sweet. It contrasts nicely with the rich flavors of sushi. La Marca is a signature prosecco with a light, fruity flavor. It goes with any type of sushi.

  4. Pinot Grigio

    For a more floral flavor, try a pinot grigio. This Italian wine is more robust than other white wines. Ecco Domani’s crisp citrus flavor pairs especially well with fish, including sushi.

  5. Riesling

    Riesling is a flavorful wine that pairs well with spicy tuna. Fess Parker’s rieslings are favorites among foodies. This brand has a great aroma and goes well with most dishes.

BONUS: Cocktails – Prefer a mixed drink with your sushi? Acidic cocktails, such as a sherry cobbler or salted paloma, will bring out the sweetness of your roll. Margaritas or dirty martinis also complement the umami flavor of sushi.
