In English, some people claim that "beauty is in the eyes of the beer holder". In other words, the ingestion of liquor, beer and alcoholic drinks in general alters the perception of beauty, typically giving it a wider, more inclusive definition. Many Mexicans share that opinion. Hence alcoholic drinks are often referred to as embellecedoras, i.e. the beautifying ones. They make everybody around the drinker seem more beautiful. 


Víctor: ¿Qué transa? ¿Unas embellecedoras?
Ausencio: Pa'pronto es luego.

Víctor: How'bout some beautifying libations?
Ausencio: Hell yeah.
