What goes best with steamed crabs?
Lissa's comment under Welcome to Crab Week raises a couple of important points:
Nice video, although I suspect that the first time I try to pick a crab, it isn't going to look quite like that.
So, what do you drink with crabs if you don't drink alcohol?
First, I forgot to mention in my Welcome that I hope everyone will plan to pick steamed crabs at least once this week, especially if you haven't done it before, and report back on where you went and how you did. Or, if you're an old hand at this, what you think of this year's batch.
Second, good question about the drinks, Lissa. I drink alcohol, but I don't drink beer. (Steamed crabs and a nice vinho verde? I think not.) People who don't drink alcohol usually get pitchers of Coke, but at Mr. Bill's Terrace Inn and probably some other crab houses, you can get pitchers of lemonade, which is my favorite.
