What to Drink?

I can not eat waffles and bacon without ice cold milk. Stilton cheese begs for a glass of port. Things ground beef seem to need beer. Thanksgiving turkey and ham go great with a glass of riesling or gewurztraminer. Iced vodka with smoked salmon.
What food-drink combinations do it for you?

    A donut is no good without hot coffee.
    BBQ demands cold sweet ice tea.
    Roast beef and a hearty red wine - Cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel.
    a sturdy Rhone.
    Wursts and beer ( and a good Alsatian Riesling is also fine).
    Pasta with tomato sauce and a cheap Chianti type from Italy. Wish I could still finds that cheap stuff wrapped in straw.
    A cigar with good brandy. Gave up the cigar long ago, but the brandy and the memory of the cigar are sufficient.

    OH MAN, is this a great question...!!!

    I'm one of those people who loves "tradition" (my wife refers to it as "anal"). I just HAVE to have certain drinks with certain foods:

    Cookies - milk
    Hamburgers - Coke
    Donuts - coffee
    Peanut butter sandwich - milk (Thanks, SJ, for those two; I agree!)
    Red sauce Italian - dry red (my preference as a cocktail for this is vodka rocks)
    Hot dogs/coneys - root beer
    BBQ at home - beer
    BBQ at a Central Texas joint - Big Red
    Sushi - semi-dry white or COLD sake
    Breakfast in general - coffee
    Lunch in general - iced tea
    Dinner in general - Hopefully, I will have had enough libation that I won't care!!

    Beyond all of the obvious stuff (chocolate cake and milk, for instance), I always like to have a glass of water with ice cream. Don't know why, but for me they go together.

    Great topic!!

    Pizza needs beer
    Donuts need coffee
    Breakfast needs coffee
    Lunch needs Diet Coke
    Cheese needs red wine
    Dinner needs libation first
    Saturdays need Canadian
    Sundays need red wine (I cook that day while I watch the races or game
    Mondays need help
    Business lunch needs sweet tea
    Business dinners never include alcohol for me
    Nighttime interruption (old folks know why) needs another diet coke

    I only drink coffee, water and tea (hot and cold) .... So, I guess I have to work everything into one of those !!!


    I pretty much like anything sweet with coffee and anything savory with Tea or water!

    Beer goes with wings.
    Fruit juice in the morning for the good, healthy stuff.
    Coca-cola, root beer, lemnonade or iced tea will do me for anything else.
    I don't drink coffee & rarely have alcoholic beverages, although I've enjoyed the Port, Stilton cheese and walnuts combo.

    A big plate of nachos begs to be paired with an ice-cold Corona (with lime).
