Fruity Tequila Drinks
Tequila, a product of Mexico, lends itself well to the flavors found in Mexican cooking. Here, it's mixed with lime and melon. These recipes, and the spicy tequila recipes on the next page, were developed by Cabo Wabo, an ultra premium tequila created by tequila aficionado Sammy Hagar, of rock band Van Halen fame.
