A street vendor was selling tepache today, a fermented Mexican beverage made from pineapple.
For me ... an aquired taste because it tastes like ... well ... pineapple that's been fermenting a few days.
I Google info about it while slurping it down. Dumbly, I only read the wikipedia article that says it is sometimes mixed with beer.
So I rush out and buy a can of beer ... I went for Tecate because it is Mexican and alliterative ... Tecate tepache. I'm thinking it is the Mexican version of a British shandy (beer & lemonade).
Now I have the beer ... what ratio? I Google further ... ooops ... it looks like the beer is part of the fermenting process.
Eh, I go with my Mexican shandy idea and do a fifty/fifty Tecate/tepache. Acually, it was quite excellent. Each drink takes the edge off the other. Very pleasant and refreshing.
Did I invent something? Tell me more about tepache? Do actual pieces of pineapple come in it? I got a nice big fresh spear, but I think it accidently escaped the water jug filled with tepache, pineapple spears and pineapple rind.
Actually, I was thinking like this guy that tempache would be good with rum.
