Celebrate Free Slurpee Day With These Distinguished Pairings

BY: Carolyn Alterio | Dec 11, 2018

Just because something’s free doesn’t mean that it can’t be savored. That’s why we’re pairing the classic Slurpee—which is free today at your local 7-Eleven—with some unexpected dishes. But before you start sipping, we recommend pouring your Slurpee into a cocktail glass or champagne flute to open up its flavor bouquet and enhance your table setting. Curly straw optional. Bon appetit! [caption id="attachment_2446" align="aligncenter" width="640"]cherryslurpee Wild Cherry: slushied, not stirred.[/caption]

Flavor: Wild Cherry Pair with: Seared duck with cherry and orange compote

Cherries have long been used to cut the richness and gaminess of duck. Revel in these complementary flavors by following each bite with a brain-freezing sip of Wild Cherry Slurpee.

Flavor: Coke Pair with: Wagyu beef burger with truffle fries

A coke is the classic counterpart to the All-American burger, so why mess with a good thing? Just up your game by choosing high-quality Wagyu beef and seasoning the fries with sea salt and a savory truffle oil.

Flavor: Sour Green Apple Pair with: Roast pork tenderloin with root vegetables

The Sour Green Apple Slurpee has a tangy bite (and jolt of color) that livens up the classic roast pork tenderloin with root vegetables. Plus, it just looks really, really cool.

Flavor: Piña Colada Pair with: Salmon with mango and avocado salsa

The mellow sweetness of piña colada accents the savoriness and natural brightness of salmon with mango and avocado salsa. It's kind of like eating a tropical island.
