Cordovan Salmorejo is a dish of mainly vegetable ingredients. Nevertheless, its most outstanding characteristics are an intense flavour and smooth texture. So, when proposing the beverage to best accompany the dish, we should choose one that gives us, on the one hand, a strong taste to stand up to the Salmorejo, and on the other, the ability to cleanse the palate with each sip so we can better appreciate the next mouthful.
Mahou 5 Estrellas is the ideal choice for pairing with this typical Andalusian dish as it meets these two prerequisites and, furthermore thanks to its excellent bitter profile, offers just the the right counterpoint to the sweet, salty and acidic notes of the Salmorejo, resulting in a well-rounded gastronomic proposal.
