Citrus flavored beverages, fruity and sweet - complement the savory saltiness of fried foods.
Full-bodied cola, both earthy and lightly sweetened, stands up nicely to salty, succulent, and rich flavors of fried foods. The fizz of carbonation cleanses the palate and balances the intensity of rich dishes.
Tea is a natural with fried foods. The earthy, slightly bitter tannins naturally found in green and black teas are a crisp complement to the rich and salty flavors of fried foods. Add a touch of sweetness and a squirt of lemon and these teas are sure to refresh.
Simple and refreshing. A cold glass of filtered, natural spring, or electrolyte-enhanced water will cleanse your palate after eating rich and salty fried foods.
