Prime Pairings: The SV Burger
1 great burger, 4 terrific tastes
There’s not much better than a perfectly grilled burger paired with a just-right beverage. The SV Burger served at Sky & Vine® Rooftop Bar has garnered a large fan base. The tasty-thin, double patties, chef Frankie’s secret, special sauce, house-made pickles and a toasted bun make it a mouthwatering experience. But what to drink? Here’s a short list of Archer’s picks for the perfect burger pairing for this local-favorite.
Beer: Mare Island Hydraulic Sandwich IPA — A burger and a beer? But of course. In this IPA, “the balance of malt always keeps those hops in check.”
Cocktail: Calle Uno — The house burger goes well with the barrel-aged whiskey, the smoke and spice of the Ancho Reyes liqueur and the sweet of the Aztec Chocolate Bitters.
Spirit: Archer’s Private Barrel of Whistle Pig Rye — The sweet notes of whiskey complement the savory meat of the SV Burger.
Wine: Banshee Pinot Noir — This red Burgundy has red fruit notes, a soft earth undertone and a bright, slightly herbal and savory finish.
