The first thing that many people think of when they think of Mexican cocktails is tequila. While this is an extremely popular drink, there are several others that can be the exclamation point to any meal. If you haven’t gone beyond tequila before with your Mexican dishes, it’s time to branch out. Eddie’s Mexican Restaurant is here to share a few more Mexican cocktails that are worth giving a try.
This is a popular drink served at most Mexican restaurants. It consists of white rice, almonds, milk and nutmeg or cinnamon. It you are looking for a creamy drink that is a bit thicker than others, this is the one for you. While this drink isn’t always spiked with alcohol, you can take this drink to the next level when you add white rum or Spanish sherry.
This is a drink that is similar to fruit punch. It is often chosen for large parties and holidays like Christmas time. You could stretch to say that this drink is a healthier one than others as it is comprised of apple, pear, guava and orange. Then there are also several spices that are added to the mix like cinnamon, hibiscus, cloves and tamarind. This is a drink that is truly loved by adults and children alike, but if you are looking for a drink that can be served at our adult only gathering, you can add rum or brandy to the mix.
If you are looking for a drink that is similar to a Mexican margarita, but aren’t looking for something that sweet, paloma is a delicious choice. It is often made from citrus sodas like fresca or squirt. But don’t forget to add the tequila and ice to make this an excellent party drink. Many people like the hint of tropical flavor fresh squeezed lime adds to the drink as well.
Some people don’t like that they have to choose between a cocktail and a beer. Well, this drink combines these two to appease both of those groups. It is also worth noting that this drink is spicy. It is made up of lime juice, clamato or tomato juice and hot juice with a salt covered rim. This is then topped with an upside down beer of your choice. There are other additions that can be added to the drink and when you’re making your own, you can choose to make it as spicy and you can handle.
For those that was just the classic Mexican cocktail, there is always a margarita. With tequila and lime being the main flavors in this drink, many people will add other fruits like mango and strawberry. Don’t forget the salt on the rim of the glass though when you go for this classic.
