AZTEC MYTHOLOGY

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

PULQUE

Aztec information

Fiery Aztec Alcohol

Gave its name to a whole pantheon of Drinking Gods from Mexico.

The Totonac Goddess MAYAHUEL invented Pulque, a firey booze fit for the Gods. With more secret ingredients than Coke and Pepsi combined, PULQUE had psychedelic properties in abundance and proved so popular that it attracted a whole pack of drinking deities.

These Pulque Gods abandoned their agriculture, their farms and their mineral water in order to get royally drunk.

A particular group of them are called the CENTZON-TOTOCHTIN, meaning ‘Infinite Rabbits’. These drunken deities represent the infinite ways that people can be affected by intoxication. Their leader is OMETOTCHTLI — presumably he’s the only one sober enough to count them all.
