After double-checking the Mexican news reports I still don't see where any actual "adulterated" or illegal alcohol was discovered. Just poor quality booze and a few sanitary violations. This is typical Mexican scapegoating for appearances sake. Nothing to see here. Just public servants simulating their jobs.

I'm with you. Looked like nothing unusual was turned up. Reminds me of restaurant cleanliness visits where I am.

It's that the bad booze is highly unlikely to be sold where folks are relatively well educated. Especially to resort hotels where there are professional F&B managers looking to move up the food chain (couldn't resist the pun). Rural and poor urban working class communities are where this is typically a problem. And it is a problem in Mexico, just not one I would expect to find in resort hotels.

Even "bad booze" will not affect you in that way. You may go blind over time due to the methyl alcohol but nothing as immediate as this. It was either a matter of over consumption or, doubtfully, a mickey.

Ask a Mexican bartender about his margaritas and tourists...

"Wow this margarita is really watered down".

This is a nationwide phenomenon in all tourist resorts I have had the misfortune of visiting.

And, frankly, bartenders get tired of hearing complaints.

There is a "magic fix" to keep the dimwits quiet until they become comatose.

It's called aguardiente.

And it (cane alcohol "popskull";) is potent as hell.

"Impure alcohol?" are they talking about dirt cheap Pancho Villa in the plastic envase?

Yet another product of people who get paid to sit on their --- and deduce poppycock from a limited wit. Asking bartenders would be, would be (what word do I seek?) accurate news reporting.

I wonder how long a State Dept employee would last at their job if they dared to do in-depth research?

A sign in my daughter's enramada says in Ingles: WE SERVE WEAK MARGARITAS. Mexican patrons howl in delight when it is translated to them.
