    • Zulema… “cactus juice” or to be exact, the sap extracted from the manso maguey plant and fermented is better known as “Pulque” can be found at many towns and villages in Mexico but moreso in Hidalgo & Tlaxcala where there are large plantations on Magueyes. The Town of Tlaxco, Tlaxcala is one of the top producers of the region.
