Silver Jewelry, Cheese and Cocktails

Standard

Manso Maguey (Agave Plant)

 We recently visited the town of Tlaxco, Tlaxcala… a very quiet and pleasant town in the pine forest area of Tlaxcala,  Where we visited the Mayors Office, the Silver workshops of Eva Martinez , a cheese making factory and then had dinner and a tour at a pulque hacienda.

  We met the new Tourist Director at the Mayors office and he surprised us by making a cocktail that he invented called a “Rabbit”made from Tequila, Eggnog and Pepsi.  Then he told us of a few legends of the town.

 Afterward we went to the silver workshop of Eva Martinez where she makes reproductions of Colonial jewelry using the “Lost wax process”, several of the ladies in the tour group bought earrings.

 After dinner in the Hacienda  we took a tour of the Agave plantation to see how cactus juice is extracted and fermented.  Everyone had a great time. Wish you could’ve been there. !!!
