While you’re sitting at home watching TV and drinking wine, you might as well be making the most of it! I have some ideas about what to sip while binge-watching all of the shows. These are her recommendations for what to drink with every type of show.
Comedy: Something bubbly – When you turn on a laughable show like “Parks and Rec” or “Big Bang Theory,” Kruse suggests a refreshing sparkling wine to go with it. It “doesn’t take itself too seriously” and the bubbles “always make for a good time (and buzz).
Horror or suspense: A crisp sauvignon blanc – If you’re watching a scary show like “Stranger Things” or “The Walking Dead,” you may want to go with a glass of sauvignon blanc to go with it dry and crisp characters in the show.
Reality TV: chardonnay – If you’re in the mood for a reality show like “The Masked Singer”, “Love is Blind” or even your favorite Housewives series, I recommend pairing it with chardonnay.
Romantic shows: rosé – For shows like ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” pour yourself a pink drink. It’s the only way to go.
Action: pinot noir – When you’re watching something like “Westworld” or “Chicago PD,” how about “a good pinot noir” because it “can be nuanced and layered, leaving you on the edge of your seat, or deep and intense, providing a rush of enticing flavors.”
Dramas: cabernet sauvignon – Like a good scripted drama, this wine “can be a bold character with lots of backbone, rich with intense flavors, layered and complex.”
So pour yourself a glass, get on Netflix party and cheers to your favorite show!
