Calif. toddler OK after accidentally drinking margarita out of plastic sippy cup at restaurant
15/06/2007

ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) - Kim Mayorga was confused when her 2-year-old started making funny faces and pushing away the apple juice he had ordered at Applebee's. The explanation came when she opened the lid of the sippy cup and was hit by the smell of tequila and Triple Sec.

The restaurant staff accidentally gave Julian Mayorga a margarita Monday. He grew drowsy and started vomiting a few hours later and was rushed to the hospital.

"I wasn't going to make a big deal about it," the mother told the Contra Costa Times on Thursday, "but then he got sick."

The apple juice and margarita mix were stored in identical plastic bottles, and the manager mistakenly grabbed the margarita container to pour the boy's drink, said Randy Tei, vice president for Apple Bay East Inc., which owns the franchise restaurant and nine other Applebee's in the San Francisco Bay area.

One more reason I'm glad to have allergies. I stay out of restaurants.

Yowsers... toddlers have to be careful. First the antiseptic hand cleansers can make them drunk and/or sick, and now the spiked sippy cup! I hope the little guy is okay.

Just shows it pays to pay attention to your child's cues about food and drink and not force them to consume them if they think there is a problem -- whether they have allergies or not!
