Eat first... Drink lots... have a nice nap afterwards!

I was going to say, nutz to "tasting"...DRINKING is what it's about. Which gives birth to a question: Can anybody tell me the name of the tequila that is VERY cheap, comes in a plastic bottle the shape of a behive? Two years ago It was less than 20 pesos. Sort of harsh, but an adequate mixer. Thanks. Chuck... 8)

We did the tequila tasting tour in El Pitillal and loved it. It's nearby and ours included a meal which was very good.

I'm not sure if it's the same one listed in the tours section of this site or not.

If you get to the one in El Pitillal, try the almond tequila and cherry tequila. MUY BUENO!

No offense intended....but those really aren't "tequila's"...they're liqueurs...and as such...shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence as "tequila". jmho

You guys are totally correct. I think it has to do with the fact that it is, for the most part, young people and girls that like the flavored drinks. Their palates are just not developed enough to appreciate the subtlties and nuances of a good liquor. Remember the late 1960's and early 70's? People were all over flavored wine like Annie Greensprings peach this and berry that? Chuck... 8)
