The Top 10 drinks to learn Spanish.

 

Mixing education and booze?

Is that a good idea?

 

From what I can tell, our entire university education system is built on this combination.

 

Here is your Top 10 drinks from which you can learn the Spanish language.

 

1. CORONA – CROWN

(koh-ROH-nah)

If Budweiser is The King (el rey) of Beers, then why does Corona have the crown?

There can only be one crown.

 

 

2. JOSÉ CUERVO – JOSEPH RAVEN

(KWAYR-boh)

I’m fairly certain a tequila named Joseph Raven could sell well also.…

Edgar Allan Poe drank this by the gallon.

 

 

3. PATRÓN – BOSS

(pah-TROHN)

This stuff is boss.

The bosses.

 

 

4. MODELO ESPECIAL – SPECIAL MODEL

(moh-DAY-loh  ay-spay-SYAHL)

No caption needed.

 

 

5. CARTA BLANCA – WHITE LETTER

(KAHR-tah BLAHN-kah)

This Mexican beer is very close in name to “Casablanca” – the movie and/or the home of the President – The White House.

Blanca means White.

 

 

6. CAZADORES TEQUILA – HUNTERS TEQUILA

(kah-sah-DOH-rays)

Just don’t go hunting for the keys after drinking your share of this fine tequila.

This really says it the best.

 

 

7. SOL BEER – SUN BEER

(SOHL)

Mmmm, warm beer…. Wait. No. Who is marketing this stuff?

Mmmm, warm beer.

 

 

8. TEQUILA AVIÓN – TEQUILA AIRPLANE

(ah-BYOHN)

Leslie Nielson’s favorite tequila, for sure…. But remember: Friends don’t let friends fly drunk.

Kareem’s favorite tequila.

 

 

9. DOS EQUIS – DOUBLE X

(DOHS  AY-kees)

A few too many XX’s can lead directly to some XXX fun.

Most interesting cerveza in the world.

 

 

10. PACÍFICO – THE PACIFIC, PEACEFUL

(pah-SEE-fee-koh)

I’m sure the Pacific is peaceful… at least when El Niño isn’t raging.

Chris Farley = the best El Niño ever.

 

 

Bradley Hartmann is founder and el presidente at Red Angle (www.redanglespanish.com), a Spanish language training firm focused on the construction industry.
