Bitter beer face? Heck, no.

Might I suggest trying out my latest obsession? Of the drinking variety, it’s as simple as one, two, pop cap, squeeze, really. Just grab yourself an unfiltered wheat beer (I used UFO because it happened to be in my fridge at the time) and a giant pomelo, which is kind of like a cross between a blood orange and a pink grapefruit; it’s way sweeter than a grapefruit, but has a tiny kick of tart at the end but lacks that intense bitterness a la the grapefruit.

I managed to scoop up a pink fleshed pomelo at my local market, but apparently they are much more rare than the pale green variety. The skin is unusually thick and spongy and when ripe, this puppy produces quite a bit o’ juice.

Perfect for eating, or perfect for squeezing in your drink. It’s the greatest concoction to bounce into spring, really, and it will get you feel sun even when there’s rain.
