"Pulque - Aztec Wine Cooler?" Mexico City Local Custom Tip by ChicagoGuy

Mexico City Local Customs: 90 reviews and 88 photos

Along the way to Teotihuacan we tried pulque. This is a native Mexican drink and it is wonderful. It is made from cactus and is low in alcohol but high in taste. I am not sure why more outsiders have not tried this drink from the Aztecs. It can be drank plain or with juice.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
