Another very old tradtional indigenous drink in mexico is called ATOLE, a corn drink often served with Tomale,Corn dough cooked inside the corn husk. that we talked about in the mexican comida and also shown here. ATOLE is prepared by roasting cornals of corn. Grinding them up traditionally using a MOGAHETA, a mexican pestal. Then stiring the resulting meal, which is called PINOLA into water. Most ATOLES sold in the markado are served warm or sweeten with honey and often Flavored with fruit juices. Cinnamon,Vanilla, or chocolate. Interestingly 100 years ago in mexican tribes ATOLE was the only drink that pregnant people can drink because they believed that it was soothing and Nutritious, and it will create a calm soothing mood for the expected mother. Be sure to get to try this hot/cold drink ATOLE if you get the chance. This is PAELLA, the national dish of SPAIN, yellow safron rice, vegetables, and seafood.
