No meal is complete without a proper drink, but tacos are especially worthy of a special refreshment to wash all that goodness down. Because Jarritos soda is now the “Official Drink of Tacos,” it’s the obvious choice to keep you quenched as you munch away on your next Taco Tuesday feast.
Check out our list of Jarritos flavors that we’ve paired with eight popular types of tacos. Think cheese and wine pairing, but way more fun!
Carne Asada + Mango Jarritos
The popular carne asada taco is stuffed with flank steak and ripe with the marinated flavors of fruit juices and spices. To counterbalance the richness and heat found in carne asada, we recommend pairing your tacos with the tang and sweetness of Jarritos Mango.
Barbacoa + Tamarind Jarritos
Dried chilis and spices are sprinkled into beef barbacoa tacos for a true smoky taste. Amp up the flavor with the similar zing of Jarritos Tamarind and your tastebuds will be tingling for more. Tacos or tamarind? Why not both?
Chorizo + Mandarin Jarritos
Egg and chorizo tacos make an oh-so-delicious breakfast paired with a cup of OJ. On special mornings, you can take your morning routine up a notch glass by replacing your morning OJ with a frosty bottle of Jarritos Mandarin for the same rejuvenating effect.
