Mexican Drink Recipes can be expected to be as varied as the indigenous groups of Mexico. Tequila is the most popular Mexican drink in the world and has been mixed and matched with various recipes to diversify its uses. In fact, drinks such as The Martini or The Pina Colada often switch out gin and rum for tequila, making them Mexican authenticated. Tequila has a long association with drinks such as Margaritas, which often involve salt, lime, and a party. However, the advent of many more tequila brands has helped the drink become more and more associated with good cognac or whiskey. Mexican drinks also promote real ingredients. No real Mexican drink has any mix so its important to use fresh lime juice. Olive juice is also used in splashes while olives stuffed with jalapenos offers a great way to spice up any drink.
