Pulque, once the drink of gods and rulers, is now available in a can.
After about the year 800, several Mixtec kingdoms developed in the regions known today as Oaxaca and Puebla in southern Mexico. Mixtec artists excelled in creating small-scale, fine works of art, including polychrome pottery. A Mixtec noble may have used this well-painted goblet to drink chocolate or pulque, a fermented beverage made from the sap of the maguey cactus.
