I want to Made in Mexico with a few girlfriends tonight and we ordered Bulldogs.
I have seen these the last couple times I have gone for drinks and clearly this is an intriguing drink. How can you turn down a margarita that has a bottle of beer turned upside down in it? I’m not going to lie – I would prefer a regular ol’ margarita. Side note about margaritas – I don’t think I can drink copious amounts of these, which I think my liver appreciates. Tequila and me don’t mix well. Not in a typical alcohol-related way, but more in that the amount of citrus that is normally mixed with tequila makes me queasy. Also, if Snookie drinks these, then clearly I need to avoid these.
The real reason I wanted to post about another visit to Made in Mexico was to talk about mole sauce. Now, I don’t know a ton about Mexican food – my experience is limited to this restaurant and Chipotle (blasphemy?!) and I am trying to learn because apparently it is trying to kill me. Mole sauce, according to our good friend Wikipedia, is the name for a number of generic sauces in Mexican cuisine. Classic mole sauces include ancho, pasilla, mulato and chipotle (various types of peppers). Now apparently there is five categories/classes of mole sauce: chiles, sour (tomatillos), sweet (dried fruits and sugar), spices, and thickeners (nuts and tortillas). At Made in Mexico they use this mole sauce on their flautas and enchiladas. BE AWARE OF THIS AND BE SAFE. And don’t die kids.
Just some friendly advice to enjoy Mexican food safely.
