Infact chilli pepper plays a vital role in traditional Mexican food. Chilli peppers and salt were and are so important for the people of Mexicans, and it is evident from the fasts which condemn eating these when you are fasting. Mescal (a strong pale liquor), Tequila and Margarita (made from tequila, citrus liquor and limejuice) are the main traditional Mexican beverages.

Cancun Real Estate; Luxury Condos and Rich Traditions

July 31st, 2010 by admin

Living in Mexico is always full of surprising little contradictions that, more often than not, add to “zip” that drew us to live in Mexico in the first place. Those who have chosen buy Cancun Real Estate as their new home will already know how this works, and those who are thinking about it, will soon be enjoying these little contradictions for themselves.

 

Here’s one recent example: Cancun’s new interactive Tequila museum, which presents the history, the production and its importance as one of the world’s favorite liquors. Something so serious, about something that makes people the complete opposite … (the “interactive” part, however, doesn’t mean that you try tequila in the museum, unfortunately!) If you love tequila, this will be a great way for you to learn some interesting details about it, if not, it will be nice little bit of information.

 

While these little contrasts become an almost expected part of day to day life in Mexico, they are also a part of what defines real estate in Cancun; contemporary modern design, juxtaposed with traditional Mexico relaxation and enjoyment of life; highrises with beautiful condos and excellent views of the beach and ocean, contrasted with the nearby jungle and the natural beauty in the eco-parks and cenotes (relaxing pools at the cave entrances to the area’s underground river system); fast, convenient and inexpensive transportation to and from home with Cancun’s newly expanded international airport, opposed to slow-paced lifestyle, relaxing on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

 

In Cancun, lifestyle is likewise defined by these kinds of juxtapositions; the best of modern conveniences, such as large international stores, top-of-the-line health care and excellent roads goes hand in hand with rich Mexican traditions which have been attracted to Cancun from all over the country, including live Mariachi music, the best of Mexican food, and Tequila itself; residents can enjoy activities such as going to clubs and bars for a lively night out, or they can choose to participate in traditional Mayan rituals (carried out authentically by locals who have preserved the tradition from generation to generation.)

 

These kinds of pleasantly co-existing contrasts in life have made owning a Mexico Condo in Cancun one of the most desired real estate options. As Cancun grows, it will continue to develop an even more complete lifestyle of contrasting, and sometimes contradictory, but happily co-existing, aspects of real estate and life.

The Planter and the Pilgrim

July 27th, 2010 by admin

Jamaican Planters’ Punch

1 part lime juice

2 parts sugar

3 parts Jamaica rum

4 parts water and ice

A doggerel for this recipe runs: “One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, and four of weak,” thus making it easy to keep the proportions in mind. This is Planters’ Punch as it is made in Kingston, Jamaica, British West Indies, where the rum is manufactured. For the regulation Planters’ Punch a dash of Peychaud bitters must be added. Shake and serve very cold.

Mississippi Planter’s Punch

1 tablespoon of sugar

1 lemon-juice only

1 small shot of rum

1 small shot of Bourbon whiskey

1 large shot of cognac brandy

Dissolve the sugar with a little water in a mixing glass. Add the lemon juice, then the rum, Bourbon, and brandy. Fill with fine ice, clap on the shaker, and go to work. When well frapped pour into a long thin glass. Decorate with fruit (if you want to be swanky) and serve with a straw and a vibrant drink coaster (http://www.thirstycoasters.com/servlet/-strse-Western-Lifestyles/Categories).

If this cooler doesn’t make a Mississippi cotton planter forget about the boll weevil, charbon, and high water, give up trying to make him forget. All that is lacking in the recipe is a shady gallery, a rocking chair, and a palmetto fan.

Tangipahoa Planter’s Punch

1/3 pineapple juice

1/3 orange juice

1/3 lime or lemon juice

1 teaspoon of grenadine syrup

2 large shots of rum

After mixing and sweetening to taste with the grenadine, add the fruit juice, the two shots of rum and put plenty of ice in the tall glass. Jiggle with the bar spoon until well frapped.

Viva Villa

1 lime-juice and pulp

1 small spoonful of sugar

1 large shot of tequila

Dissolve sugar in a little water. Squeeze on the juice of a green lime and drop in the pulp of half the lime. Next the shot of tequila and fill to the brim with finely cracked ice. Jiggle with the spoon until well frapped. A pinch of salt brings on the flavor.

Tequila is a native Mexican liquor distilled from the Century plant, which also supplies the Mexicanos with mescal, another powerful potable. The drink gets its name from the Tequila district where the Century plants (Agave tequilana) are cultivated for the fermented juices they yield. Tequila is practically colorless-but don’t let that fool you.

All you need to make this drink perfect is a sombrero and a senorita. Omit the sombrero if necessary, but don’t leave out the senorita or at least the red, white, and green beverage coasters!

Rum Runner

1 dash of Peychaud bitters

1 lime-juice only

2 small shots of unsweetened pineapple juice

1 spoonful of sugar

1 large shot of rum

Dissolve the sugar in the unsweetened pineapple juice. Squeeze in the juice of a lime (lemon will answer but it doesn’t give quite the flavor a lime does), then the bitters and muddle well. The shot of rum can then be added. You may stir this drink with several lumps of ice but shaking improves it and the white of an egg gives it added smoothness.

During the unlucky thirteen years that Prohibition darkened the land, the rum runner was the only little ray of sunshine on an otherwise somber horizon. What more appropriate than a demon rum drink be named for this angel of mercy?

The hostess who strives to give her guests something deliciously different can do no better than fix upon a Rum Runner. But she must be prepared for many repeats. They always come back for more.

If you want a Pilgrim’s Progress- substitute grapefruit juice for the pineapple juice. Then you’ll know why the Pilgrim Fathers came over on the Mayflower, landed on Plymouth Rock, and entered the business of distilling rum from molasses. It was to provide our ancestors with the Spirit of ’76.

Blood Alcohol Levels

July 25th, 2010 by admin

An excessive consumption of liquor content results in the increase in someone’s blood alcohol level. For most persons who attend parties liquor is thought to be a needed element for having a good time. Blood alcohol content is a measurement used to detect how much liquor content is in someone’s blood stream. It is measured in percentages starting from 0.01 up to 0.40 or greater. Most people exhibit some form of being drunk at 0.03 percent. Once blood content has reached 0.35 percent the possibility of casualty and unconsciousness heightens. First time users are also more susceptible to becoming unconscious with as little as 15 percent. This has lead to many of our current road accidents as well as criminal offenses.   
Since the early 1900s there have been many alcohol exclusion laws put into practice to deject people from drinking. The limits under which you are able to drive while drunk may differ from state to state. Blood alcohol content below 0.08 percent in America is thought to be unlawful and individuals who are charged can face stern criminal charges. Women usually are more susceptible to become intoxicated, so a female’s blood alcohol content will rise much quicker than that of males. Persons who are bigger in size, are less likely to get intoxicated, they will have half the blood alcohol content versus someone else half their size even if they drink the same quantity of liquor. An individual who is assumed to be under the influence of alcohol mainly when driving are tested with a mechanism known as a breathalyzer. Contents of saliva, urine or blood can also be taken to examine your blood alcohol level.
There are various ways to minimize your chances of getting drunk. The brand of liquor you consume as and the amount you drink at a time can increase your chances of becoming drunk. Alcohol containers provide the details on the amount of alcoholic content provided in each serving displayed as a percentage of the alcohol volume. Some alcoholic drinks have far more alcoholic levels than others, so you should lessen those that have a high content. For example wine on average has a alcohol content varying from  6 – 14 percent. Hard liquors such as whiskey, tequila, vodka and rum, usually have an alcohol content of approximately 40 percent. The alcohol percentage is documentated as half of the proof. ‘Liqueurs’ have an alcoholic level that ranges from 15 – 30 percent or even higher. Normal bottled beer usually has an alcohol content of about 5 percent by volume while light beer is approximately 4 percent alcohol. Other strong specialty beers and malt liquors may have alcohol levels up to 8 and 10 percent. When drinking mixed liquor try to limit your intake for each serving, as they have a variety of different liquors that have different alcoholic contents, that you might not be aware of that can get you under the influence quickly. Also watch out for cognacs work as a ‘creepers’. These beverages don’t show the effects of the alcohol while drinking but instead much later on.  
Over time there have been many DWI books written to educate individuals about the seriousness of becoming intoxicated as well as driving under the influence of liquor and ways to avoid this ordeal.  These books aim to educate persons about the implications of drinking not only as it relates to a legal perspective but also in regards to their physical health.  
Most DWI books also talks about what legal steps you should take if you are arrested with simplified terms that give information on certain procedures and ways of defending yourself in a possible DUI case including how to employ a certified DUI attorneys. It is made so that the every day persons is able to understand some of the court procedures relating to DWUI|DUI so they are more able to legally protect themselves. Sometimes there are even illustrations of persons who have previously been in DUI cases, who have evaded being locked up.

Tips on Caribbean Shopping (watch Out, Pirates!)

July 23rd, 2010 by admin

Veteran cruisers to the Mexican Riveria will tell you that there is more to recommend Cozumel than just electric blue waters, killer Margaritas, and great snorkeling. It may just be one of the all-time best shopping destinations in the Caribbean. So how can you steer clear of the pirates of the Caribbean (most of whom no longer wear eye patches but instead operate shops catering to tourists) and get a good deal?

Some of the best shopping in Cozumel is within easy walking distance of the port. The cruise ship docks and shoppers can pretty much walk to great shopping in a few minutes. But there are lots of shops and even sidewalk displays. How do you know what’s what?

There are really two main categories of merchandise in Cozumel. The first might be considered in the souvenir category and spans trinkets to very nice quality merchandise with a distinctive Mexican feel. The second category would be luxury products.

If your shopping list includes colorful but inexpensive jewelry, a bottle of tequila, a leather wallet, and some Mexican pottery, there are quite a few shops that will meet your needs. One of the best and easiest to navigate is Cinco Soles (Five Suns) near the port. Here you can find everything from toys to dishes to T-shirts to leather goods along with the ubiquitous tequila and bottles of vanilla (Mexican vanilla is generally of very high quality and reasonably priced). The store personnel speak English and accept credit cards.

A fun shop in Cozumel that is not really Mexican is Del Sol which sells plain-looking T-shirts, tote bags, Frisbees, even nail polish, that change color when exposed to sunlight. Del Sol stores are located at many locations (not just Cozumel) but they’re still fun and the bright sunlight of Mexico shows off the Del Sol treasures to great effect. There’s one near the cruise port.

You may also see small sidewalk displays and other offers for everything from marionettes to dangling earrings. Wending your way through the shopping district of Cozumel can be tough, since merchants will speak to you and attempt to lure you into their shops. You can simply walk on by; merchants will not actually grab you and push you into their stores. If you make eye contact, you will be at a massive disadvantage; the more you respond to them, the more likely they will be to kick up their persuasion a notch to get you into the shop. On the other hand, if you’re out shopping, it can be fun to talk to local merchants and allow them to show off their best wares for you.

There are lots of big and small displays of such goods and if you do not spend very much, it is unlikely you can go too far wrong.

The other end of the Cozumel shopping spectrum involves luxury stores. Believe it or not, there are several outlets of Diamonds International and other high-end jewelry stores in Cozumel. You’ll see them all over as you walk along the waterfront (likely in view of your cruise ship, that’s how close they are).

Specialties at these stores include high-end watches, gold, silver, diamonds, emeralds, tanzanite, Mexican fire opal, and two rare gemstones ammolite and alexandrite. (If you do not know these stones, it can be worth a visit to one of these stores to see them.)

Don’t expect these stores to offer diamond rings for a pittance. But there are reasons why savvy jewelry buyers make the trek to Cozumel to do some special shopping.

First, there is no sales tax in Cozumel. If you stay within your allowance for the amount of merchandise you can bring home without paying duty (which is $800 for a U.S. citizen), you pay only for the merchandise. In the U.S., sales tax is around 8% and it is even higher in Canada and Europe.

Second, many of these top stores have an international presence. You can get customer service once you’re back home.

Third, many cruise lines have developed relationships with some of these stores. This sometimes engenders suspicion, but the relationships are actually beneficial to cruise passengers eager to buy high-end merchandise.

If your cruise ship has a shopping expert or if there is a talk on shopping, by all means participate if you think you’ll be buying products (particularly jewelry) in Cozumel. It is true that the shopping guru onboard will steer you toward certain shops and it is likely that those shops have paid a promotional consideration to the cruise line for that publicity.

But here is why that’s good for passengers. Most cruise lines will not endorse just any store that can pay a fee. Cruises return to the same port over and over again in a season and it would not be good business to recommend shops that were difficult to deal with, charged exorbitant prices, or otherwise were bad news for the customers.

Second, some cruise lines (such as Carnival) will allow you to register your purchases at selected stores while onboard. If you take advantage of this service, the cruise line guarantees the merchandise. That means if your new watch stops once you get home or you find out your gold and tanzanite ring is not authentic, the cruise line backs the merchandise.

Finding out if your cruise line does this and what shops it recommends is a great activity for you to do on your day(s) at sea before hitting Cozumel. Registering purchases with the cruise line should be done on the next sea day because you must register what you buy while still onboard the ship.

Luxury items abound in Cozumel: jewelry, perfume, watches, and even rugs. Rugs from exotic places like Turkey, India, Pakistan and Persia can be purcased in Cozumel (great selection, no sales tax, outstanding service) and shipped to your address back home. The Rug Emporium offers an extensive display, lots of English-speaking help, and free shipping Stateside.

Last but not least, lots of people buy liquor in Cozumel. Tequila and Kahlua are the most popular but by no means the only alcoholic purchases you can make. Liquor can be purchased in Cozumel at the shops or can be bought onboard ship for around the same price (but possibly not with the same selection).

The same is true for perfume. The onboard shops likely offer some fragrance and cosmetic products, but the big perfume shop on Cozumel’s main street by the harbor has a much more extensive collection. If what you like is onboard, you can probably get about the same good deal as you can by buying it in the land shop. However, if you want to see a broader range of products or you want to buy a product that the onboard boutique does not stock, you need to try the land store.

Cigar aficionados will find that Cuban cigars are not only legal in Cozumel (and onboard once the ship is in international waters) but plentiful. If this is a big deal for you, enjoy them in Mexico and on the boat, but don’t bring them back into the U.S.

So what about those famous pirates of the Caribbean? Like any buzzing shopping mecca, Cozumel has its share of merchants who sell shoddy merchandise, counterfeit products, or things they claim to be silver and gold (which are not). If you are not expert enough to know the difference, steer clear of shady looking vendors or shops far off the beaten track. The old adage “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is” holds true for ridiculously priced diamonds or gemstones.

Most cruise lines will warn you to avoid spending big money with dubious vendors. If you want to buy a T-shirt, a kid’s necklace, or some typical souvenir items, go ahead and shop the small stores or street vendors. If you are thinking of spending hundreds or thousands on jewelry, go to a reputable and recommended store. They’re there in Cozumel!

Zip on over to http://www.TheCruise-Shopper.com for the latest in cruise ship information. TheCruise-Shopper does not sell travel so you won’t be under any pressure to buy anything (not like going to Cozumel). Mandy Karlik wrote this article. Her last Cozumel purchases: a leather wallet, Chanel Chance perfume, and a very wonderful new watch. Imagine what she could do if she had more than a couple of hours!
