Here are a few suggestions about the drinks you can have with chili:
 
Bacon, Ground Beef, and Bean Chili waiting to be paired with a delectable red wine. 
 
The best thing about chili is that just like you can have this dish at any point of time you can also chose any kind of beverage to go with it , it is more of a personal choice!  Beer, cocktails or wine all go well with chili, here are a few standard drinks you can pair with Chili.
 
Beer - Beer is a wonderful beverage to pair up with the dynamic chili. Beer can handle the heat, meat, beans, spices that are found in Chili.  You can use the beer Vienna lager which is also sold under brands like Negra Modelo and Dos Equis Amber in Mexico and the US. This lager has a sweet and caramel taste that offers a pleasant contradiction to the spicy chili.
 
Cocktails – When choosing cocktails to go with your chili, pick the simple ones that are light in flavor and made to go with the chili. Pimm's Cup, whiskey-based Presbyterian or a Paloma with it's tequila base and soothing grapefruit soda should do it for you. 
 
Wine – When it comes to wine with chili, what you need is Red wine. Choose red wine that has a balanced acidity and tannin content. Think about using an Argentinian Malbec, a Shiraz, a Tempranillo or even select Cabernet Sauvignons. If you like white wine more than an off-dry German, a Alsace Riesling or Cava. A dry Rose wine will also be a perfect choice.
 
Other Drinks-  I have a cousin who loves having Chili with Milk and personally like my chili with a sweet and delicious mango drink. Ginger ale is also another favorite choice with my family.
