Aztec Alcohol Goddess
Also known as Mayahual, Mayouel
Goddess of Alcohol
She got the idea of distilling agave seeds after watching the exploits of a drunken mouse.
As protector of the cactusy maguey plant, she greatly assisted her husband Patecatl in his medicinal researches.
At one point teetotalers tried to stamp her out. No chance — she is far mightier than Minnie Mouse. See Pulque for the whole intoxicating tale.
