I needed a break so I came to Mexico City.
Pulque About this sound [‘pulke] is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the maguey (agave) plant. It is traditional to central Mexico, where it has been produced for millennia. It has the color of milk, somewhat viscous consistency and a sour yeast-like taste.
This pulqueria is located on Plaza Garibaldi in the Centro Histórico. I chose the guyaba flavor.
Guyaba is a tropical fruit that tastes like soursop. It was only 25 pesos per cup ($1.33) and the taste was fine. However the consistency was similar to saliva and I only had one.
The alcohol content isn’t very high so one would have to drink liters of the stuff to get hammered.
