PULQUE

Aztec booze which has a drinking club packed with Gods.

Mayahuel stumbled upon a mouse running around in circles and was absolutely fearless as she approached. It just stared at her, then laughed itself right off its feet, for no apparent reason, then fell asleep. We have all done it.

Suspecting the mouse's crazy antics were down to the cloudy juice dripping from a nearby Maguay plant, Mayahuel teamed up with the Aztec's very own mad scientist, Patecatl, and decided to have a crack herself. Spicing the fermented liquid with more mystery ingredients than Dr. Pepper led to Pulque, a tipple fit for the Gods.

A particularly partial group of them were known as Centzon Totochtin, the Divine Rabbits, who unashamedley referred to themselves as the drunken Gods. There were 400 members so it would seem the Mexican Pantheon had more than a little booze problem. But where did they drink? Was there a pub for the Gods?

Unfortunately, the Aztec mortals drinking club was pretty much restricted to OAP's. You had to be a ripe old age before you could sample the delights of alcohol legally and, let's be honest, dodging sacrifice for most of your life before you earned the right to get pissed was a tall order.

Try as i might, i have been unable to pin down those involved to grab a list of ingredients, but even if i did i doubt they would be sober enough to remember. I'll carry on with trial and error. Hic...
