frustration at work turns one's mind to the topic of adult beverages

when i lived in dc, i couldn't find xtabentun anywhere. i also couldn't use the internet to import it, to myself, because dc has rather pathetic liquor laws. it took me quite a long time upon moving back to new york to even think about this and look into whether i could get this sent to me here. sure enough...hooray! i knew there was one million and one reasons i came back. anyway, i would like you all to get some xtabentun and try either of my two simple drink recipes.

mayan margarita
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz xtabentun
splash triple sec
3-4oz lime juice (adjust to taste/how strong you want it)
dash orange bitters

combine ingredients in shaker, shake, serve over ice. profit! (salt-rim glass okay to use, by the way)

1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz xtabentun
1/2 oz butterscotch liqueur
3-4 oz hot apple cider (adjust to taste/how strong you want it)
cinnamon stick and/or star anise for garnish

combine tequila, liqeuers, and cider into an irish coffee mug (or a regular mug, i mean no need to go to the target or anything), stir, add garnish. profit!

you can also just add xtabentun to coffee with some milk for mayan coffee.
