For the traditionally minded, click here, here and here.
(salsas, those ubiquitous rice and beans, along with the soul-satisfying ropa vieja)

Tired of the same old hum drum shots of tequila? Go for a paloma, here.
Buy authentic fried chips at a small grocers, and dip them into plenty of Mexican crema.
After a few palomas, ponder the advantages and responsibilities of being born on this side of the border.


  1. I missed that recipe for palomas last year. Must try. Just had a grapefruit-campari drink this past weekend, but it was pink maybe more than I would like.

  2. Punsters and wags--love it.
    L: campari is too close to cough syrup for you think they serve it at Rancho Bar?

  3. The guys at the studio today were calling it Cinco de Drinko. Drive safely.

  4. I took my kids to the Taco Spot. We had fun.
