What's the sign of a good party? We say: when a table is filled with dessert, and the wine is still flowing.
Here are our 8 favorite classic party desserts for a barbecue -- cakes, cookies, ice cream, and pudding -- with wine pairings provided by Dennis Keohane from invino (check out their offer in the Shop!). Because for us, the arrival of desserts means the party's just getting started.
Fruity & Creamy
Drink N.V. Albert Bichot Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Reserve, a citrusy wine with fine, even bubbles.
