#DYK the fermented milky drink known as Pulque is made from the maguey plant? In ancient Mesoamerica, pulque was a beverage restricted to certain groups of people and to certain occasions and its consumption was linked to feasting and ritual ceremonies.
Today we raise a glass of pulque to toast to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York 151st Anniversary!
