Mexican Coke in My Midst
A month ago I posted an item about mixologists' lavish thirst for Coca-Cola made south of the border—the kind made with cane sugar, not corn syrup—and about those bartenders' unwillingness to reveal where they located specimens of such soda in the contiguous 48.
Well, today I finally found a source of the Holy Grail. It was not in some out-of-the-way bodega, but in a huge supermarket, one I visit thrice a week. They sell the stuff for $1.29 a glass bottle. How and why they have it in stock, I do not know. How I happened never to spot it, I also do not know.
I'd like to tell you where to get it. But I've decided to follow the model of the mixologists who so stonewalled me in the past, and not let out the secret. More Mexican Coke for me.
