Huatulco, Oaxaca MX

Hey hey, don’t try to blog after the first margarita…

One part lime juice – it takes 5 limes to make about a 2 ounce portion of lime  (these are the 1-1/2 inch dia. MX limes…

One part Contreau, or in Mexico you can find find Controy at about 100 peso a liter.  Instead of Contreau for for 700 peso…  add 2 oz

And dd two parts tequila blanco.   4 oz.  Again you can find a nice tequila here for around 90 peso a liter Romero, El Jimidor, Orendain.

This makes 8 oz. of margarita, (ALWAYS make margaritas for two people, NEVER drink them both yourself) split the 8 oz. portion into two glasses and then fill them with ice and salt the rims, viola! MARGARITAS for TWO!

Did you know the margarita was first cooked up in Acapulco by Dallas socialite Margarita Sames,  or,  it was invented by someone else?  But who really cares?  reference: http://vinepair.com/wine-blog/the-mystery-behind-who-really-created-the-margarita/

Oh yes, Huatulco, Oaxaca…

We spent 12 days in Huatulco, Oaxaca.  Took a trip up to Oaxaca City the state capital and an old colonial city, saw some lovely gardens and cascades and big trees and Indian ruins…

Huatulco, how beautiful…

    Good stuff Brother Jim, I also looked at your google photo page of the events. Quite taken with the flowers and stuff when I come to a sideways photo of a statue of Ignacio Zaragoza. I in the middle of reading Graham Greene’s The Power and the Glory which takes place in the aftermath of the revolutions in Mexico when the government went on a anti clerical campaign. Anyway I knew the name. He’s why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Here is a great article on him. http://badassoftheweek.com/zaragoza.html You might set him straight.

    I’ve always wanted to go to Chiapas. I recently reread Charles Portis’s hilarious and profound book, Gringos which is set down there. I told Jessica to read it and I think you would love it. I am due for a trip to the Modoc soon, as these 6 day weeks are killing me. The old grey mare ain’t what she used to be… Love, Bro Tim
