5 Myths About Tequila - Debunked!

Tequila is a very popular spirit here at Mexicali Blues. Mostly because it is the main ingredient in the best margaritas at the Lake of the Ozarks, but also because we carry a wonderful variety of different tequilas behind the bar. 

If you aren't a tequila connoisseur, there's a good chance you've heard some things about this wonderful liquor that simply aren't true. Today's blog will debunk a few of those silly myths and possibly give you a new appreciation for tequila.   

Tequila is made all over the world.
Just like authentic champagne must be made in Champagne, France (otherwise it is sparkling wine,) true tequila must be made in specific areas of Mexico. More specifically, it has to come from a delineated part of Mexico that is centered in the state of Jalisco. Types of "tequila" made outside of these designated areas are actually referred to as an agave spirit.

How You Can Relax This Labor Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks

Labor Day is a holiday meant to pay tribute to the many contributions that workers in America make every day, making our country stronger, more prosperous, and a great place to call home. Getting to spend your Labor Day Weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks gives you the perfect setting to relax and truly enjoy a well-deserved 3-day weekend. Today, Mexicali Blues has a few suggestions of ways to enjoy your holiday.

Have Fun on the Lake
At the center of the entire lake area is the big, beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. It can be relaxing to just sit on the shore and admire the natural beauty surrounding it, but if you're looking for some fun, you need to get yourself on, or rather in, the water. 

It could be a leisurely boat ride to a quiet cove where you can spend the afternoon swimming. You could also take advantage of the many watersports possible on the lake like tubing, water skiing, paddle boarding, wakeboarding, and more. You're going work up an appetite while you're out there,…

Mexicali Blues Salsa - Delicious, Healthy, & Packaged To Take Home!

Some people come into Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach specifically for Taco Tuesday, others are more interested in our world-famous margaritas, and some simply can't get enough of those fantastic fajitas. Even if they can't agree on which menu item is the best, they will all agree on the fact that we have the best salsa at the Lake of the Ozarks

Why Our Salsa is Special
Due to popular demand, we ended up bottling our salsa so that customers could take home more than just a to-go cup full of it when they left our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant. Since we have quite a few visitors every year from out of town, we've even gone the extra mile to get our salsa out of town. It can currently be found in over 70 grocery stores across Missouri!

Obviously, it's the taste that makes people fall in love with our salsa. To achieve that fantastic flavor, we use only all-natural ingredients and absolutely no preservatives in our recipe. The robust taste of Mexico comes out from the…
