I'm no historian but I'm pretty sure no one distilled pulque and nothing like mezcal or tequila was available until the distillation process was introduced by Europeans.

Also, all tequila is mezcal, but only when it's from Tequila, Jalisco is it actually tequila (I don't care what the government or so-called authorized producers say). From anywhere else it simply is not tequila by definition.

And then they give a margarita recipe sure to ruin any decent tequila. Tequila is for sipping straight.

¡Salud!

Is there a well stocked liquor store in Centro? The Commercial was not a great selection two years ago.

I recommend Tequila Por Favor. It is located on Avenida Cuauhtemoc two blocks in from the cancha. You can click the following link to see it's location on Google maps.

Tequila Por Favor is a great place...Check with Benjamin there who speaks fluent English and French and great to do business with. He is very good at directing you to the best choice for tequila and mezcal and they also have a nice selection of cigars too...they also have some wines and other alcohols but the focus is on tequila and mezcals...

Acuariano aka Andy’s also has a decent wine selection.
