And Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Fermented Cactus Sap’ Is … Pulque!


If you watched that tacotastic episode of No Reservations last night, youre now more than familiar with pulque, the fermented cactus sap that we asked you to guess the name of in order to win a signed No Reservations poster. We got a ton of responses, including at least one saying that pulque isnt technically cactus sap. Yes, the maguey is technically an agave and not a cactus, but since Bourdain described it as the sap of the maguey cactus (as well as man juice and Mexican Viagra), thats what were going with. In any case, if theres a congratulatory message from us in your in-box right now, youre the winner. If not well, be the first to tell us where to find a pulqueria in New York and well treat you to one of those gigantic glasses of the stuff.
