Beverages to Go With a Provincial Chinese Dinner

This Month's Film: Raise the Red Lantern
Cuisine: Chinese

For my 'Raise the Red Lantern' provincial Chinese dinner, I will be serving Oolong tea, TsingTao beer (the most readily available brand), and the remainder of the plum wine from last month's Hong Kong dinner. But I have to remember to go lightly on the plum wine. It's so delicious and spicy and exotic that it goes down easy, but last time...just a few sips went right to my head.
