What is Pulque?

This mysterious drink has been taunting me. I first heard it mentioned at Cabo Baja Taco Grill and then a few more foodies threw it out there but no one could tell me where to get it, except in Mexico City. Not helpful!!!!

Well, now that I've watched this amazing video on this mysterious beverage I understand why it's impossible to find in LA.

It has about the same alcohol content as beer and is made from the fermented 'honey water' of the Agave plant. The same plant used to make Tequila and Agave Syrup. Such a plant this is! OY.

Even though this movie is in Spanish (it won an Emmy!) you can still get the gist if you don't speak Latin.

I find it all to be terribly fascinating!
