Irish people drink tea, Mexican people drink tea too, only very, very cold. We love 'aguas frescas', which in most cases are either fresh fruit juices squeezed and mixed with water and sugar, or teas that have been iced. On cold winter days, which in my part of Mexico are not that many, we love having hot Mexican drinking chocolate. The chocolate is mixed with cinnamon, vanilla and some spices and it is served hot and frothy. Here are a selection of drinks we like and regularly use. Hope you enjoy them too!
My Mexican Shop is run by husband and wife team, Lily & Alan. He is Irish and she is Mexican and they met in Japan over 15 years ago. Lily has been living and cooking in Ireland for over 10 years now.
They both share a passion for good food, travel and cooking; When not busy running their business and carrying out other work endeavours, they can be found in their Dublin kitchen, cooking (mainly Lily) and eating (mainly Alan) all sorts of yummy food.
