Mexico is the hallowed birthplace of tequila, but its lesser known brother is equally intriguing if far less intoxicating (at around five-percent ABV). Produced in some form or another for thousands of years – the ancient Aztecs brewed a version to honor the fertility goddess Mayahuel – pulque is a traditional beverage to central Mexico. Made from the fermented sap of the maguey (a relative of agave, the same plant used to make mezcal and tequila), it has an oddly foamy, milky, thick texture and a sour yeasty flavor.
