The Best Drinks to Pair With Popcorn

Several excellent popcorn and drink pairings go perfectly together, whether it’s a movie night, game night, or a gathering with some friends. So which drinks pair best with popcorn? Here are some of our favorite combinations for the next time you enjoy a bucket of popcorn.

Red Wine With Salty, Buttery Popcorn

We recommend pairing red wine with salt and butter popcorn. The wine’s tannin offsets the popcorn’s sodium mouthfeel without completely overpowering it. Instead, the salty, buttery popcorn retains its taste with a robust and well-rounded flavor. 

Beer With Parmesan Garlic Popcorn

One of our most popular gourmet kettlecorn flavors is parmesan garlic, which pairs well with an ice-cold glass of beer. This combination activates all the taste buds in your mouth, producing a fantastic popcorn and drink flavor perfect for a party. 

Bourbon With Caramel Popcorn

The taste of caramel popcorn and bourbon makes the perfect combination, especially if you add some brown sugar. Bourbon has a slight caramel flavor that matches perfectly with caramel popcorn. This flavor results from the charred-oak wood used to make beer barrels and tanks when maturing the drink. 

Whiskey Sour With Cheddar Ranch Popcorn

Pick up our cheddar ranch gourmet kettlecorn and add a whiskey sour on the side for an exciting flavor combination. For this drink, combine 2 ounces of bourbon whiskey with 0.5 ounces each of lemon and lime juice, plus an ounce of simple syrup. Shake, pour over ice, and add a lemon wedge. The nuanced flavors of your whiskey sour make a perfect companion to the sharpness of the cheddar ranch. 

Strawberry Peach Bellini with Cinnamon Bun Surprise Popcorn

This sweet cocktail can pair with an equally sweet popcorn flavor to produce a burst of taste. We suggest purchasing a bag or tin of our delicious cinnamon bun surprise to pair with a strawberry peach bellini.
