“What are the traditional drinks of Mexico?”
Every Mexican Restaurant in Hong Kong serving Mexican cocktails has its distinctive flavor and style for margaritas.
Lime is the traditional flavor for margaritas, but mixologists experiment with other fruits and vegetables, like pineapple, cucumber, and jalapeno, or more exotic flavors like tamarind and prickly pear. You may even find a margarita blended with tajin herbs rather than the usual salt.

Beer is the second most adored drink in Mexico after tequila. Many new or old breweries serve beers worldwide, but you will discover small-scale local craft beers in Mexican Restaurants.
