SANTA FE, N.M. — I’m not a big drinker, but I’ve always loved tequila. I once even traveled to Tequila, Mexico, on the Tequila Train, where I drank the cutest little mini-margaritas, called tequilitas, all the way there and back from Guadalajara.
I did quite a bit of dancing in the aisles, I vaguely remember, and otherwise learned to sip and savor the Mexico-born spirit via la bandera, a drink that’s really three, served in small glasses — blanco tequila, a spicy tomato juice and lime juice, the white, red and green of the Mexican flag. (You can, and should, take your time when drinking this. The tequila may come in a shot glass, but it is not to be thrown back like you’re at a frat house.)
