If you appreciate good liquor, the best thing to bring home from Mexico City is aged tequilas. Look for the tall, skinny bottles sporting the Corralejo label. The Don Julio and Milagro brands are two other good buys. These souvenirs are best consumed sipping or cooking into a meal for extra flavor. For those who would rather avoid agave, fine silver products are Mexico City specialties, too. The mines in nearby Taxco de Alarcón yield some of the world’s finest plata. Metalsmiths take over to shape the silver into jewelry, household items and artwork, available at most local luxury hotels. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest shopping at Tane, which got its start in Mexico City. The Polanco location peddles chic silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets. You can even frame your Mexico City vacation photos in silver picture frames from Tane.
