Start your mornings with BLOODY CEASAR--just substitute Clamato juice instead of Tomato juice in BLOODY MARY--knocks out cob webs and is an excellent "de-fogger"!
Yummy...caesars are my favourite drink here at home. MUCH better than Bloody Marys! They were invented at a hotel in Calgary, Alberta and they are very popular here in Canada.

Vodka, Clamato juice, salt and peppered rim, worchestershire and tabasco sauces, and a lime wedge or a stick of celery....sometimes you get a dill pickle or pickled asparagus spear in there too.

I've come to the conclusion that I really don't care much for sweet drinks. I "may" indulge in a margarita now and then or perhaps a mojito, but basically I stick to beer ~ preferably Sol in a bottle ONLY ~ tequila with side shots of sangrita ("Little Blood" made with tomato juice, orange juice, grenadine and lime) and Micheladas.

Michelada translates roughly as "My Cold Beer" ~ Zydeco and I find them VERY refreshing, but I will admit that they are sort of an acquired taste. The first ones we had ~ served up by my brother-in-law from Cozumel and EXCEEDINGLY strong ~ were a shock to our taste buds.

Micheladas are ideally served up in frosted mugs that have been rimmed with salt like a margarita. Fresh lime juice (lime goes into the mug), Worcestershire sauce, Maggi seasoning, soy sauce, Tabasco and black pepper are mixed together then poured into the mug which has been packed with ice. I'm guessing that roughly 1/4 of a cup of the mix would go into the bottom of the mug which is then topped off with your favorite beer. I like mine "FUERTE". Michelada devotees often prefer a dark type of beer like Modelo Negro, but I like mine with Sol or Corona. Before drinking stir the beer and spice mix together gently and top off with additional beer as you drink it.
This is MY idea of THE PEFECT BEACH DRINK! Especially when consumed in one of the swing bars....

Mojito and Marg's are my favorites . But, try a Caesar with Tequila instead of vodka. You will never go back. YUM YUM

When in Manzanillo, my wife found a drink called a bananamama. It has banana liquour, kahula, rum and milk. She fell in luv with them.


Any tequila drink for me as long as it has a salted rim!

Very timely thread. Just got back from our favorite local Mexican resturant. Started on the margaritas. Now at home making them with the last of a bottle of Grand Centenario Reposado. (Did shots with the Anenjo) Need to make room in the liquior cabinet.
