What is Horchata?

Horchata is a delicious rice (or coconut) based drink that you can find at most Mexican restaurants in the United States and abroad.

The reason it is so popular is that it always adds a refreshing touch to any meal. I have yet to meet someone that has tried it without falling in love and being disappointed when it is gone.

If you go to any Mexican restaurant, you can probably find some version of this delicious Mexican beverage. However, many of those are made from powder and don’t have that authentic taste. I found that some have more of a strong cinnamon taste while others are more creamy. Made right, horchata is smooth and rich, and has just the right amount of sweetness.

How it’s made

This recipe will take some preparation. The good news is that it is easy to make. In fact, you probably already have all of the ingredients that you will need in your kitchen. If you don’t already have them, don’t worry – they are easy to find and are very inexpensive.

The best way to do this is to start soaking the ingredients the night before. That way, you can sleep instead of just standing around waiting for this delicious drink to be ready!
