Pulque is an alcoholic drink which was first drunk by the Maya, Aztecs, Huastecs and other cultures in ancient Mesoamerica. It is a frothy, milky, sour brew made from the fermented sap of the maguey(agave) plant. The drink has its own personified goddess and in central Mexico, she was known as Mayahuel (pictured above) who was associated with fertility and sometimes referred to as 'the woman of 400 breasts' in reference to the milk-like sap of the plant. Pulque can't be found in most liquor stores, since most batches are home brews, but is typically served at pulquerías or mezcal distilleries here in Mexico. ⠀
