Understanding Food and Drink Pairing


What Makes a Perfect Pairing?

At its core, a perfect pairing is about creating harmony between the food and the drink. The key is to enhance, not overpower, the taste of both elements. A well-crafted cocktail can bring out the subtle flavors of a dish, and vice versa. Understanding the core elements of each dish and cocktail can help you make excellent pairings.


The 7 on 7 Mile Cocktail Pairing Guide


Breakfast Like a Jamaican

Start your day with our “Ackee & Saltfish,” a traditional Jamaican breakfast dish, beautifully complemented by our refreshing “Morning Glory” cocktail. This lively pairing invigorates your palate with its blend of local spices and tropical fruits, promising a sunny start to your day.


Savoring Seafood

Our menu highlights the island’s abundant seafood, with dishes like “Jerk Shrimp” and “Grilled Lobster”. The spicy undertones of jerk seasoning pair beautifully with our “Island Breeze” cocktail, a soothing concoction of rum, pineapple juice, and a splash of coconut cream.


Spice Up Your Lunch

Try our “Curried Goat” for lunch. This traditional Jamaican dish is packed with flavor, and it pairs well with our “Tropical Mojito”. The freshness of mint and lime in the mojito perfectly counterbalances the rich, spicy flavors of the curry.


Evening Elegance

For an elegant evening, enjoy our “Jamaican Fusion Steak”. This dish is an explosion of flavor, and it’s perfectly complemented by our smoky “Dana’s Manhattan with premium cherries”. The cocktail’s subtle sweetness enhances the savory notes of the steak, creating a symphony of taste.


Sweet Endings

Wrap up your meal with our “Tropical Fruit Cheesecake”. This dessert is a celebration of tropical flavors and pairs well with our “Blue Skies Martini”. The martini’s cool blue color and crisp taste balance the cheesecake’s sweetness, making it a dessert-lover’s dream.


Live Reggae Performances and Late-night Pairings

For those looking to enjoy the lively Jamaican nightlife, join us every Tuesday and Saturday, from 7 PM for live reggae performances. Sip on our signature “7 Mile Swizzle” while dancing the night away to soulful reggae beats. This cocktail, with its dark rum, lime, and local honey, pairs perfectly with the vibrant atmosphere of our reggae nights.
