- For the municipality in the Mexican state of Sonora, see Tepache, Sonora
The tepache is a drink made out of the flesh and rind of the pineapple, sweetened with brown sugar and cinnamon and sometimes beer. Tepache does not have a high quantity of alcohol, since it is left to ferment for only about three days. The alcohol comes mostly from the addition of a small amount of beer, the most common way of serving it in Mexico.
Tepache is commonly sold by street merchants, because the process of creating tepache is simple and quick. Tepache is mostly popular with indigenous population in Mexico.
The word Tepache originates from the aztec language náhuatl which means "drink made from corn" which was used initially to ferment this drink.
