What is Tejuino? Refreshing ancestral drink in Puerto Vallarta.

Published on

Tejuino, our refreshing ancestral drink.
Made from fermented corn, piloncillo, lime or lemon, salt, and ice. Tejuino is delicious and refreshing!

Its name comes from the Nahuatl word “tecuin,” which means “heartbeat.” This drink originates from Mexico, specifically from the ancient Western Cultures, such as the Wixárika (Huichol) people, and is popularly made and consumed in Jalisco.

Tejuino is considered a type of corn beer due to the fermentation process that takes between 24 and 48 hours. Its characteristic sweet flavor comes from the sugars in the piloncillo and the starches.

For the Wixárika people, tejuino is the preferred beverage at social events, sports and religious festivities, and during “tesgüinadas.” These are gatherings where important political and economic decisions for the community are made or where challenging tasks requiring the communal participation of men are undertaken. Additionally, tejuino, when mixed with breast milk or diluted in water, is consumed by infants and children.

How do people usually drink tejuino?

This beverage is very popular in our state; you can find it in all regions of Jalisco and it is generally sold in public squares. Some people prefer to add lemon, salt, and even chili powder, and it is very common to find it served with a scoop of lemon sherbet.

No matter how you choose to enjoy tejuino, this beverage is very refreshing and delicious—something you must try on your next visit to Puerto Vallarta.

You can also make your own homemade tejuino with corn dough, piloncillo, water, salt, lime, and ice to taste. Since its fermentation period is very short, you won’t have to wait long to enjoy it. Give it a try!
