Great trivia questions I only knew these 4 & 1/3 answers...Mexico - avocado - tequila & Kahlua - an onion - NY. And I've only known two of them since I started living half the year in Mexico 6 years ago. Mexican coffee is delicious & fun...one of our favorite restaurants here in Isla prepares it table side, flaming & with icecream...yum!
