Drink this pulque cocktail at Mezcaleria Las Chupacabras
Pulque is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the maguey plant (a kind of agave) that’s been produced in Mexico for more than 2,000 years. Fizzy, low-ABV and slightly sour with a cloudy, milky color, it’s featured prominently in our current favorite drink at Mezcaleria Las Chupacabras, where canned curado de pulque (pulque blended with fruit and/or sweetener) is mixed over ice with a shot of Juerte Destilado de Pulque, an aged, distilled spirit also made from maguey. It’s available in three flavors, but we’re partial to pineapple-coconut – think piña colada vibes. The resulting cocktail tastes tropical but with a sourness and some smoky bitterness from the mezcal that puts the whole drink in balance.
