Mas Tequila, Por Favor

So, I'm in Mexico City for a work trip. Today we went sightseeing. Among the churches, temples, ruins, and pyramids, I learned the most important thing of all, the correct way to shoot tequila. Our guide, Jesus, gave us the tutorial. Most of us have done the whole lick your hand, sprinkle the salt, lick the salt, shoot the tequila, suck the lime, thing. However, according to Jesus, this is the Hollywood way, yes, the gringo way. The correct method, which I will happily demonstrate for all of you upon my return, is as follows: sprinkle the salt on the lime, suck the lime and hold the juice in your mouth, shoot the tequila, and swallow all the yummy goodness. It's not nearly as strong, and tastes like a mini margarita! Thank you, Jesus!


  1. The 11th commandment: Thou shalt put salt on the lime, not one your hand.

  2. And here I've been just knocking back the tequila by itself. I am so ashamed.

  3. How cool that you're in Mexico City for WORK! I think the salt on the lime thing is a result of everyone being so antibacterial... I'm all about licking the salt the old school way :) haha
