I thought they were water in a used wine glass.
Until I had one by accident with a creamy seafood dish that had some heat. Then, suddenly, there were all of these new flavors. Having flavor at all would have been an improvement, but these were actually quite enjoyable crisp fruit flavors that accentuated the flavors of the food.
So, I recommend having a nice one with some mellow, buttery or creamy seafoody kind of thing. I think that the protein, fat, and salt(?) from the sauce really brought out the flavors I hadn't found before. Not only was it a nice palate cleansing type of feel in my mouth, but it just genuinely tasted good and made my food more enjoyable.
I don't have one in particular to recommend, nor do I even remember which one I had that time--it was some mid-range Italian PG that I got for free because of some server or bartender had made a mistake.
I may be wrong.

And I qualified my original answer with, "If appropriate for your guests."
But we're not all sweet tea drinkers down here. Just because I am doesn't mean that I drink it with everything all the time.
Tea refreshes me, quenches my thirst and keeps me going. Wine has a different magic all its own that's not limited to a geography or a culture.
I may be wrong.
I voted for whatever you want to serve........ which for me is a Long Beach Iced Tea.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Hmmm...so it's meant to be an accompaniment for food rather than a kick back pre-dinner sipper. Ok. I will give it a shot the next time I have such a dish. Thanks!
It depends, however, if you are serving Teabaggers I find they usually prefer to drink Kool-Aid.
