Shrimp in Tequila: Camarones al Tequila

The pace of Mexico is perfect for a thirsty traveler. Get up when the sun does and enjoy the calm of the morning, siesta in the heat of the afternoon, and eat and drink into the moonlight. I spent a wonderful time in the town of Tequila ... not a sandy beach in site but a true taste of what Mexican hospitality has to offer. In the Orendain hacienda I enjoyed a family meal full of laughter, great food and tequila. Try this Shrimp in Tequila for a taste of Mexico. Kevin Brauch, The Thirsty Traveler
