Word of the day: pulque

The word of the day is pulque:

  1. a fermented milky drink made from the juice of certain species of agave in Mexico.

"He also permitted the sale of pulque and rum on market days, in direct violation of Escandón's orders; and drunk as well as exasperated, the local peons and common people of the town began rioting."

- John Womack, Zapata and the Mexican Revolution
