Bottoms up! Drinking at Hong Kong’s Mexican restaurants
In addition to fabulous food, Hong Kong’s Mexican restaurants also serve up traditional drinks. Love it or hate it, tequila is one distilled beverage that packs a punch. Made from the blue agave plant, tequila has been in production since the 16th century in the Mexican state of Jalisco. When it comes to drinking tequila, most people are either repulsed by it or a huge fan, with no in-between. A margarita, however, can mask the strong flavour of tequila with its tart, citrusy flavour. Almost every Mexican restaurant in Hong Kong has its own signature margaritas, some of which are made with extra flavours like strawberry and peach. Take your margarita the old-fashioned way (over ice), or order yours frozen – watch out for brainfreeze! Of course, if you’re not crazy about margaritas, you can also enjoy Mexican beers, perfect for washing down whatever tasty Mexican dish you choose.
