Ojo Rojo (pronounced ‘Ock-o Rock-o’) literally translated means: Red Eye.
Though, this popular Mexican phrase is used to allude to the effects of consuming great spicy food, and/or the struggle of the morning after the night before! It describes someone having ‘all the fun’ or ‘living life to the fullest’.

It is true that the more traditional way to say how name would be with a hard ‘H’ and a throaty rasp, but in the interest of anglicising the sound, and making it easier for the UK tongue to pronounce, we introduced the hard ‘K’ sound. After all, we are anything but purely traditional.
