Pulque

Agua de las verdes matas,
tu me tumbas, tu me matas,
y me haces andar a gatas.
 
TRANSLATION
Water of the green plant,
you cause me to fall, you slaughter me,
and you make me walk on all fours.
 
Pulque is an alcoholic beverage from the juice of the agave plant. Same plant where tequilla is from but pulque is not distilled. Yesterday on our field trip to Tlaxcala we actually got to try this beverage. To me it tasted like a wine cooler, however it had a very strong alcoholic smell. Luckily I was in the back of the bus so after everyone had tried their sip, I was able to finish off the rest. Let´s just say it made my evening homework a little bit easier.
