Beaujolais Nouveau Wine

This Pad Krapow Gai Recipe recipe is an easy and quick dish to make with sweet, spicy and fresh flavors from the basil. With this dish, I prefer a light red wine. A Beaujolais Nouveau is a young fresh red wine that is meant to be enjoyed young. Since it’s not complex, offers light fruit flavors and is a little dry, which melds well with this dish!
