Beyond margaritas

We didn’t just eat new things in Mexico, we tried some new drinks too. In the top photo I am drinking a Berta in Taxco. It’s a refreshing concoction of tequila, club soda, honey and lime. Cheri’s newfound drink of choice is tequila and clamato (yep, it’s just what it sounds like: clam and tomato sauce). And in that frosted glass in front of me is Phil’s michelada: beer mixed with tomato juice, worcestershire, lime and hot sauce with a salted rim.

But by the far the weirdest thing I didn’t drink but could have was the pulke that Chris had to scour the market in Taxco to fine. It is a local drink made from fermented agave plant that is “bottled” in used two liter botttles (you can see those in the bottom right of the not very good photo). Phil and Chris finished off two bottles on the terrace at our hotel while Cheri and I shopped. Fun for all!

Barb - Those are some interesting combinations. Your Berta drink sounds pretty good but I think I would have to pass on anything with clams or tomato juice. What exactly is an agave plant?

Mel - Most of these drinks look pretty good to me- probably because I\’m not allowed to have any of them :(. They certainly look better than the food you posted Saturday!!!
