Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This entertaining travelogue delves into the locales, festivities, and history related to Mexico's most famous libations. Each of the chapters focuses on a specific beverage as well as the region of the country most closely associated with that particular drink as seen through the eyes of a U.S. couple. 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

Synopsis:

Cultural Writing. Latino/Latina Studies. Travel Literature. A warm and funny travelogue that delves into the drinks and related culture the authors discovered in their many travels throughout Mexico. Unlike typical travelogues, LIQUID MEXICO shows how distinctive spirits such as tequila and mezcal came to play a prominent role in Mexico's culture and how they now fit into the nation's intriguing culinary and social environment. Each chapter focuses on a specific beverage as well as the region of Mexico most associated with that drink. As Youman and Estep sweep you along on their spirit sampling, they regale you with tales of travel adventure and interesting people they met along the way. Publishers Weekly's starred review called the book "seriously entertaining armchair travel."
