Outside of 'La Pasita'

La Pasita

This is Licor

La Pasita is most definitely part of Poblano culture and history. The oldest cantina in Puebla, La Pasita has been open since 1916 and sells shots and bottles of hand crafted liquor. The most famous of these, is the so-called ‘pasita’ which is pictured below. It has an unusual taste so I won’t even try to describe it, but it’s worth the try. It is served with a piece of cheese and a raisin (pasita means little raisin), which you are supposed to eat before you take the shot. Usually people enjoy the shot sip by sip, but each to their own. Each shot goes for 25 pesos with other crafted liquors available such as Rompope (look out for a post on this) and other flavours such as lemon, coconut and pineapple.

The address is Av 5 Oriente #602, Puebla Centro, 72000 Puebla, Mexico, and is located in the historical centre. It is open till 4.30pm (the days which it opens, which can be unpredictable). Otherwise, try their other location, which is open everyday from 3/3.30pm till 9pm (8pm on a Sunday). The address is: 3 Sur #504 between 5 and 7 Poniente.

¡Salud!
