The Irish vs. Tequila
As promised, I said I would explore in this blog the places where Irish and Mexican culture come together, but also where they occasionally differ. I found this video amusing. A group of Irish folk trying tequilas and their unabashed thoughts about it. The bottles range in price from about $9 a bottle to about $55 (which one calls bollocks). Well problem #1 might be that they are taking shots and not sipping it like tequila is meant to be enjoyed, but it is still funny.
Some of my favorite quotes include...
"Like a beautiful paint stripper"
"This is what love feels like"
"Tastes more money" (referring to tequila blanco)
"My mouth tastes like blood"
"It tastes yellow and hot, like mustard"
In Love & Tacos (and Potatoes)
A cultural Match Made in Heaven
Irish and Mexican folk have a TON in common and the two cultures really are like kindred spirits. This is my dumping ground for all things Mexi-irish, Ire-can, and Leprecano. I find infinite pleasure in digging up gems where our cultures intersect, compliment and occasionally differ. Please refer to my very first blog entry here to learn more about why this is a thing.
