"Casuelita" - a refreshing drink from Mexico for Foodie Friday!



"Casuelita"

I wish I could say that we have this name totally correct, but we are 99% sure. We drink these (actually one will do the trick!) in Guadalajara, Mexico. The state of Jalisco produces some of the 
finest tequila... in fact, unless the laws have changed lately, it is the ONLY state that is allowed to produce tequila. 

This beverage is served in a flat type of pottery bowl. Fresh juice from limes, oranges and grapefruit are squeezed into the bowl. A small amount of ice is added. Then pour tequila over the juices and the fruit. Serve with a straw. Muy sabrosa!! (Great taste!!)

My inlaws use to vacation in Mission, Texas. I LOVE TEXAS! Both my children were born there and I'd move back in a heartbeat if they would!

Love to you, gilry. Your blog is amazing!
