Horchata? Heck Yes!

Yesterday I tried a new Mexican restaurant which was both delicious and affordable. The only hitch- the operation was entirely in Spanish, so I had to drag out the ol’ Español which ultimately turned into me pointing to different menu items and asking, “¿Que es esto?” Obviously I could use a refresher course!
Luckily the result was a number of cheesy, beany, South of the boarder delights- and horchata. Horchata is comprised mainly of rice milk, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and other spices. It reminded me of a chai latte- which reminds me of Christmas- Wonderful!
Note: If you can, order it from a place that serves it out of a continually mixing machine, it will keep the spices better incorporated.
