After a month in Mexico City, I was itching to travel around Central Mexico and visit the colonial heartland. Kevin agreed to an 11-day road trip before we had to come back to Mexico City for our flight to Quito—as long as I planned everything.
When you think of Mexican alcohol, what comes to mind? Maybe a very light lager made for sipping on a hot summer day. Or maybe something a little stronger, like tequila. Or maybe even mezcal, tequila’s smokier cousin. If you are a drinker, you will want to enjoy all of these things during your stay in Mexico City. But none of these are probably difficult to find, in one form or another, in your home country. If you want a truly unique central Mexican drinking experience that you are unlikely to find anywhere else, you should try pulque.
