Tepache in Oaxaca

Originating from pre-Columbian times, tepache was traditionally made from corn, but modern versions typically use pineapple, brown sugar, and cinnamon. This fermented beverage, often sold in roadside stands, embodies the spirit of Mexican street food culture. Its slightly sweet, mildly alcoholic taste captures the essence of ancient recipes passed down through generations.

We also see tejate this time. Originating from Oaxaca, tejate is known as the “drink of the gods.” Made from maize, cacao, mamey pits, and flor de cacao (cacao flower), this non-alcoholic, frothy drink dates back to the Zapotecs. Tejate plays a central role in Oaxacan ceremonies.

Not sure what these are but they are beautiful.
