ANTIOCH, Calif. - 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.

"you're fired" isn't enough. Law officials need to take a serious look into this matter.

How the #$@%@%% do you get apple juice in a baby cup mixed up with a margarita glass? I'm sorry, that just makes me angry. First of all, I have never liked Applebees (their food sucks), but after hearing this, they are way at the top of my s**t list. It's not even my baby, and I still want to thrash the person who made such a stupid, careless mistake. Or worse, their idea of a joke. To be sure, I will check my son's cup the next time I order apple juice.

I was wondering how this happened as well.

What adult drinks out of a childs cup? I've never noticed it. Its not like someone wanted a marghartia put in a childs cup so they could take it with them...thats not legal...and it got mixed up with the kids apple juice.

Well I guess thats legal in Lousiana but I don't think it is anywhere else.

the apple juice container and the margarita (already mixed) were next to eachother on the shelf in identical containers. Hence the mix up.

I can almost guarentee that that was done by one staff member as a joke and it was meant to be poured out but the joke went terribly wrong. No excuses though, absolutely terrible.

Thats what I was thinking...

Does Margarita mix already have the liquor in it?? Or do you have to add that?
