Traditional Mexican Drink

What is traditional Mexican drink?

The most famous traditional Mexican drink is Tequila.

Tequila is agave based drink that usually contains 38 - 40% of alcohol.

Agave plant grows primarily in Mexican State of Jalisco near city of Tequila and in some other areas of Mexico.

However, the most important region of tequila drink is definitely the highlands of Jalisco.

In the last decades tequila became very popular drink across the World. There is no continent where people don’t enjoy tequila’s specific flavor. This caused the “invention” of numerous ways of drinking tequila.

Outside of Mexico tequila is usually served with salt and a slice of lemon or cinnamon and slice of orange. Interesting thing is that in Mexico tequila is most often drunk straight. As traditional Mexicans would say “Tequila is a man’s drink and a man doesn’t need salt to lessen the burn”.

When tequila is served with salt and slice of lemon it is drunk in this order: first you lick your hand below your index finger, than you pour salt on it and lick it again, after all this licking you drink tequila and quickly bite the slice of lemon.

Anyhow, whether you prefer your tequila straight or with salt and lemon you will enjoy a good drink (or drinks); and, if in company of interesting people, you will have fun provided of course that you don’t drive. Very important to emphasize: do not drink and drive.

If by some miracle you don’t find tequila tasteful while everybody else around you enjoys it, there is no reason to despair because there are more than 900 brands of tequila! So be patient and don’t try all of them at the same time because you wouldn’t survive it. Thus take your time.

Also you should know that tequila can be mixed with almost every other drink. However, the most tasteful tequila based cocktails are a mix of tequila and certain fruit juice such as orange juice. So if you feel adventures you can start making cocktails and really spice up your party.
