    mezcal

    Mezcal is an alcoholic drink similar to tequila obtained in Mexico by distilling the juice or aguamiel extracted from roasted tips of the maguey plant. Bottles of mezcal are usually sold containing a gusano, the larva of an insect that lives on the maguey. This is said to enhance the flavor.
