Lemon-lime, grapefruit and other citrus-based beverages complement Asian foods without overpowering them. The combination of citrus and light carbonation is a perfect way to balance sauce-heavy and rich dishes such as fried eggrolls, chicken wings, and pork satay.
Bright, clean citrus flavors such as lemon and lime lend a fresh note of acidity to help cut through the intense and rich umami flavors found in Asian cuisine and lend a welcome burst of sweet and sour.
Deep, lightly sweetened cola, earthy root beer, and intense, berry flavors complement the rich umami flavors in Asian cuisine. The fizz of carbonation cleanses and tempers spicy food and leaves the palate refreshed.
The earthy, slightly bitter tannins naturally found in black and green teas lend a full-bodied flavor that is a natural complement to full-flavored, salty and spicy Asian cuisine.
Simple and refreshing. A cold glass of filtered, natural spring or electrolyte-enhanced water will temper the salty and spicy flavors in Asian cuisine and refresh your palate.
