Hecho en Mexico

Yesterday, I did something that the first 29 years of my life had not yet seen - and it had everything to do with riding a champion dancing horse (I have witnesses and pictures to prove it for all of you naysayers... oooh horrible), even if only for a few, fleeting moments.

So while that may sound like kind of a big deal to most of you - the real "big deal" is this (not to be mistaken for little) gem.

Most of you probably need a formal introduction... so without further ado, I proudly present "el Jimador" (with Squirt - disclaimer: I have heard the red-can variation of this drink is far from tasty). What you have before you is the equivalent of a beer, only quite a bit less expensive - and a mixture of Squirt, el Jimador tequila, and some other magical ingredients.

Sadly, this picture is all I have left of our lingering relationship (started on my first trip to Penasco a number of years ago, and it was like we'd never been apart when we rendezvous-ed a few days ago) since as far as our research can tell, this delightful "margarita in a can" beverage is manufactured, canned, and sold only in Mexico.

The second we booked this trip to Puerto Penasco, I started dreaming about my lost love, el Jimador, and our reunion was nothing less than I'd imagined.

  1. Hey! I'm having a "conference call" with my two best buds from college tomorrow night to plan our 30th birthday trip. We all turn 30 in August: the 5th, 7th and 20th. We're traveling the weekend after Labor Day.

    I'm supposed to throw out some ideas, and I was intrigued about your trip to Mexico. Can you shoot me an email with some info? Why did you choose it; where did you stay; did you book the accomodations or go through an agent?



Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!

I do my best to post responses back on your own blog but if your question is applicable to everyone, I'll leave you a response here.
