Shots are best taken making a jabbing motion of the drink to your mouth and throwing your head back simultaneously, followed immediately with the word smooth, spoken with a full breath but not exhaling.
Injections are a pain in the "neck" or other parts in lower regions.

I love Andrea... (even though she is always one step ahead of me in answering posts.. Darn 100 wpm ), but I have to disagree with her on one aspect. Even if Carnival recommends the establishment, I would still steer clear of tap water and ice. They are only as pure as their suppliers. Be careful and don't let Montezuma have the last word on your vacation.
Good to mention ice. I narrowed down a bug I hosted in the Dominican Republic to ice. Same water, in frozen state doesn't necessarily kill the bugs. In fact it may preserve them! I did loose 20 lbs. through that ordeal.
Now I am by no means advocating throwing caution to the wind, but I have been eating and drinking in Mexico since 1957, long before my first cruise, and I have only been stricken one time--from food at a fast-food joint in Long Beach, CA.
