Hi

"I'm sure you've already had a margarita and the next thing you're going to go to is tequila.

What "go" means in that sentence above? It sounds like 'drink/have a tequila' to me. Am I right?

Thanks in advance

    Yes. It just implies that you’ll move on (go) to another drink. (But isn’t a margarita mainly tequila anyway? :))

    Yep. The implication, of course, is that you'll stop diluting the tequila and drink it neat. (My old chief's recipe for rum & Coke: "Fill a glass with rum, then show the glass a picture of a bottle of Coke. Just a picture, though -- if you show it a real bottle you'll dilute the rum too much.")
