Want to know what drinks you should bring to your paint and sip session at Pinot & Picasso? There is absolutely NO wrong answer to this! There is booze for every mood!
While everybody has different tastes but we’re here to offer some tips & ideas. Here is a bit of a guide to help you decide what you’d like to bring to your next paint and drink session with us!
Wine not?! It’s in the name, but you don’t have to restrict yourself to a glass of Pinot, or wine in general. However, wine is our most popular drip of choice.
Whether you’re celebrating an occasion or just enjoying a night out, sparkling wine will never look out of place at Pinot & Picasso. Pop a bottle of your favourite Champagne or other sparkling wine like Prosecco or Cava.
For those who are newbies, we recommend easing into the world of wine with some crisp and semi-sweet whites like a Moscato, Pinot Grigio or a Sav Blanc. For those who want to dip their toe into red wine, we suggest a Pinot Noir or a Beaujolais Nouveau (fancy!)
If you are attending paint and sip class in the warmer seasons, a Rosé is a perfect summer drink. It is a great wine to have for those early sessions. It also pairs well with a variety of different foods, which puts it a level above just red & white wines.
Put your male partners at ease… they CAN get on the beers at Pinot & Picasso! Often people stick to the beer they’ve been drinking for years, so here is some advice on what type of beer to drink according to the season:
In colder weather, darker and medium to full-bodied beers will be your alcohol blanket. These type of beers are often brewed with spices, herbs & fruits. Try an IPA, Old Ales, Mild Ales, or a Stout.
In the warmer seasons, light to medium-bodied beers is your go-to. You want beers that can be served cold without completely numbing your palate. Try a Pale Ale, Summer Ale, or a Lager.
Many craft breweries like to produce different beers throughout the year. Here are some recommended Aussie beers: Young Henry’s, Balter, 4 Pines, Coopers.
Ciders are also a good summer alternative for beer! Somersby, Strongbow & Rekorderlig have some great flavours to choose from.
If spirits are your preference, you can bring some pre-mixed drinks to our studios. Whether you like a clear spirit like Vodka or Gin or have an acquired taste for Bourbon or Whiskey – there are so many options out there for you!
This doesn’t mean bringing in a full bottle of straight rum with you to our studio. It’s gotta be pre-mixed – easier for you and our hosts. Many of the big brands like Smirnoff, Gordon’s, Jack Daniels & Jim Beam have RTD cans in 4-6 packs ready for any occasion.
Ultimately, it’s entirely up to you and what you’d like to drink at our paint and sip classes. We hope this guide steers you in the right direction (most likely the bottle shop!). We’ve also got you covered with glasses, so when we say you bring just the drinks, we mean it! We look forward to seeing you in a Pinot & Picasso studios soon. Cheers!
