One Mojito And It's Christmas / Un Mojito Y Es La Navidad

I MET A visiting friend in Málaga for a drink Saturday afternoon. We met at 4:30 and had Mojitos Malagueños, which I had never had before. These mojitos include Malaga Wine (the local sweet sherry). After the mojito, I saw the light. To put it mildly, I liked my Mojito Malagueño very much.

CONOCÍ A UNA amiga visitante en Málaga para tomar una copa el sábado por la tarde. Nos conocimos a las 4:30 y tomamos Mojitos Malagueños, que yo nunca había tenido antes. Estos mojitos incluyen Vino Málaga (vino dulce). Después del mojito, vi la luz. Por expresarlo de un modo muy suave, me gustó mucho mi Mojito Malagueño.

DESPITE THE SIGN, THEY WERE ONLY 3€!
A PESAR DEL CARTEL, SÓLO FUERON 3€!

THIS IS WHAT I SAW BEFORE THE MOJITO MALAGUEÑO.

  1. You must still be seeing the light from the drink, I didn't see a thing!

      It would take a lot more than one mojito for you. I'm a lightweight.

      I had planned to see the lights before I headed home but I had forgotten about the opening light show. Perfect timing.

      I've never read anything about who designs the displays each year. I'll see if I can find out. They're always amazing, but I had never seen the light show and music when they're turned on.

      You're so right. Really energized me despite the mobs of people and the then the crowded train home.

      It does look ice-heavy. But it didn't taste that way.

      And every year it's something different. This one is fascinating in that it's designed like a cathedral with the nave, the dome, and the stained glass windows.

      No add-on; all it takes is a whiff of alcohol for me to see the lights.
