As kids, we loved molten marshmallows, squished between chocolate squares and crunchy graham crackers. Now that we’re adults, we can wash those s’mores down with something more interesting than milk. Of course, the average red or white wine doesn’t pair well with sticky, sweet s’mores. Aim instead for Port or a dessert wine. Here are seven perfect pairings for the ultimate s’mores and wine match up.
Barbecue — in all its regional forms — stirs passion like no other homegrown American cuisine. Each style, from vinegary Carolina to smoky Texas to dry-rub Memphis and grilled, sauced St. Louis, has legions of loyal fans. When it comes to washing it all down, icy cold beer is a natural partner, but we’re partial to the fruit of the vine. Bold, peppery zinfandel is a classic pairing for barbecue.
What weighs in at 1.7 pounds and 996 pages, with a red-wine-stained cover? The second edition of Karen MacNeil’s “The Wine Bible,” a just-revised edition of her 15-year-old comprehensive guide to the wine world. The Napa Valley-based wine expert began writing the original guide in 1990, when she couldn’t find information about wine’s cultural, historic and gastronomic aspects all in one place. So MacNeil created her own reference work.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
