Not the way I read it. Comprehension challenged?

''.....victims, of either spiked drinks, for a possible kidnapping, rape, or some type of foul play, or the alcohol itself was tainted, and the tainted alcohol is the reason why the pair were at the bottom of the pool, or wherever they were found in the water.''

Even then you may be taking a chance.


What you advise, always have the beer bottles in Mexico, opened in front of you, is a well known paranoid practiced by many tourists in Mexico. ( I admit I do it myself, because it's so well known)

But the question is what do you do about mixed drinks, where most of the alcohol related problems seem to occur, because the alcohol content is so much stronger in mixed drinks than regular Mexican beers have an ABV alcohol content of only about 4%.

I predict, we will see more alcohol related problems, and charges of spike drinks, in Mexico, when Mexican resorts starts serving Mexican craft beers with high ABV Alcohol above 6% to 10% like in the states.

The thing about Abby Conner's, and the alleged spike drinks, poisoned alcohol, and all the other stories about bad Mexican alcohol.

The admission by her brother, that both him and his sister( Abby) were doing shots, at least 5 shots, followed by a Jagerbomb, and possibly more drinks.

Abby's 0.25 blood alcohol level is probably consistent with a similar sized young woman, drinking the same amount of hard liquor, in the states, that we know is not tainted.

So I find it hard to believe that Abby's drinks were spiked or tainted when her brother admitted they were drinking excessively ( shots) in such a short time.

Stay out of the Mix


Do as I Did.

Don't order Mixed Drinks in Mexico.

And, don't drink to excess.

Sober is safer.
