The authors describe a wealth of interesting characters as they travel the country to unearth the traditions and unique culture associated with each drink and its corresponding location. "A well-written, captivating journey that guides the reader into the heart and soul of Mexico. Along the way we learn about the birth of mariachi music, Taxco's silversmith tradition, the impact of tourism in the Yucatan, the evolution of Oaxacan ceramics, and the Cuban cultural influence in Veracruz." -- Jonathan Stein, Publisher Open Road Travel Guides
