A few things can make a good night out, an exceptional night out. We have one more month of summer fun, so let’s make the most of it. When the company, food, beverage pairing and service all come together, this elevates the evening. Read below to discover a few of Scout’s favorites to ensure you have the best experience with Summer Perfect Pairings.

Squirrel’s Pizza | 2218 Bull St

Lindsay Sparmann of Squirrel’s Pizza  put together the perfect Summer pairing just for you: Hot Cherry Pepper Pizza with Ezzo’s Cupping Pepperoni and Mike’s Hot Honey paired with Lindsay’s fabulous cocktail of Ghost Coast Burl Gin, Luxardo Limoncello, Aperol, Honey, Fresh Lemon and Club Soda.  Are you grabbing your keys now?


Moon River Brewing | 21 W Bay St

Don’t miss Moon River’s summer seasonal, Cerveza de Rio Luna which pairs perfectly with a large platter of their signature nachos which include Wacky Wit Beer Queso sauce. Invite out a few friends and share some nachos with a Cerveza and discuss the perfect Summer pairing.

Rocks on the River | 102 W Bay St

Nothing says summer like a delicate rosé. We recommend Fleurs de Prairie from Languedoc, France as a complement to the blackened local shrimp with grilled watermelon, arugula, queso fresco and green tomatillo dressing. The bright acidity and delicate fruit flavors of our summer dish make it the perfect pairing with a light rosé.


The Emporium | 254 E. Perry St

Order the Grilled Lamb Chops with smoked grapes, salsa Macha and peanuts.  Next comes the perfect beverage accompaniment of Diplomatico Venezuelan Rum and finish it with a dessert order of Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding with cream cheese, Cremeux, candied peanuts and Anglaise.  The PERFECT summer pairing!
