In Mexico, Micheladas, ice-cold beers doctored up with a mix of hot sauce and fruit juices, are known as a hangover cure.
In Mexico, round boxes of La Abuelita or Ibarra chocolate are as familiar and well-loved as Nestlé’s Quick and Hershey’s syrup are in the United States. The individually wrapped tablets of chocolate inside are laced with canela (Mexican cinnamon) and stoneground cocoa nibs, which give Mexican hot chocolate its distinctive flavor and earthy texture. Both brands are becoming more common in national supermarkets, but you can always find them in Mexican markets or at mexgrocer.com.
¡Salud! This makes a dazzling party drink whether poured from a frosty pitcher or doubled or tripled and served in a punch bowl. The frozen mango chunks (found in the freezer section of most supermarkets) keep the punch cool without diluting it. The pomegranate seeds add color.
