Tepache

Tepache is steeped in heritage... literally. This traditional fermented beverage has been made in Mexico for centuries, dating back to the pre-Columbian era. Its name is derived from the Nahuatl word tepitl, meaning 'drink made from corn'—the original main ingredient of the Nahua people’s brew.

Today, Tepache is made by fermenting pineapple scraps along with water, sugar, and various regional spices like cinnamon and clove. It typically does not exceed 1-2% ABV , but sometimes people spike it with beer, tequila, or mezcal to give it an extra kick. The resulting drink is a fizzy probiotic beverage that is sweet and slightly tart, reminiscent of pineapple kombucha. 

Tepache is most often found in street markets in Mexico, sold by vendors who serve up their own unique recipe in plastic cups or baggies.
