Part of our market tour was to stop at pulqueria bar to drink some pulque. Pulque is made from the fermented sap of the maguey plant, native to Mexico. Pulque was a sacred drink, drunk by Aztec priests and by sacrificial victims to ease their suffering (ay que nice!). After the Spanish conquest and with the introduction of beer, among other things, consumption declined. However, as of late, it has been making a comeback. They flavored the drink to make it more appealing, especially for the young folks who stop by before school for a buzz. The bar we visited, with walls and ceilings appropriately painted for the upcoming buzz, served pulque in all sorts of fruit flavors. Some were tasty....some were not.
