We Matched These Aussie Summer Recipes To Some Delicious Bevvies So You Don’t Have To

Good food, good booze — what more are you looking for?

So, it's a hot summer day on a long weekend and you've got your mates coming over for some food and drink (while respecting current COVID-19 restrictions, of course). You're kind of over the standard snags, burgers and beers, but what else is there?

1. To start off with, try a chickpea and tomato loaded hommus — a dish that will sure to delight any guests you have coming over for cheese and biccies.

In order to get the most flavour out of your dish, make sure to pair it with a bottle of Love Not War, Organic Sangiovese.

2. If you're looking to fill your table with something a little unexpected, but still summer fresh — try out this teriyaki roasted pumpkin and noodle salad.

And to really bring out all the delicious notes of flavour, make sure you're sipping on a glass of the Pepperjack Chardonnay.

3. If you're vying for a summer salad that will actually fill you up and consist of more than spinach leaves — get a forkful of this hot smoked salmon and potato salad.

But be sure to tuck in only after you've gotten yourself a tall flute of sparkling Jansz.

4. For a summery main course, treat yourself (and your guests) to linguine with barramundi and olives.

And make the most out of the taste profile with a bit of bubbly: Postcards from Italy Prosecco.

5. To finish off your summer feast — elevate the traditional pav with this peach and raspberry slab pavlova recipe.

And no dessert is truly finished without a little tipple of something — namely, a delicious Roku Gin.
