What was the drink Brando was drinking in the cantina. With flies in it.

Not milk. But it looked like a shake.



It's called Pulque, pronounced, "poolkay". it is a non-distilled, fermented drink made from the maguey plant.It has been consumed in Central America for at least a thousand years, but in the last seven decades it's place has largely been taken by beer. Efforts are being made to revive the production and consumption of pulque in Mexico.
