Perfect Margarita

In Mexico they don't use Cointreau or Triple Sec, but an orange liquer called Controy. Margs are made exclusively (for non-tourists) with silver tequila.

Fancy Brewski

Authentic Michalada recipe from the state of Guanajuato, Mx:

1 dark beer
Juice of one lime
2 jolts tabasco (or to taste)
2 jolts Worcestershire Sauce
Two twists of fresh ground pepper
A dash or two of Maggi sauce

Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed, chilled glass.

Some say this is like drinking a steak and love the hearty taste. Others can't appreciate the unique flavor.
