Growing up in Mexico one of my favorite drinks to go along with my favorite tacos and other great Mexican food was Horchata. For those of you who have not tried this, you are going to want to! Horchata is a delicious rice (or coconut) based drink that you can find at most Mexican restaurants in the United States and abroad.
Horchata definitely adds a refreshing touch to any meal and everyone that tries it seems to fall in love and are disappointed when it is gone. Their are different varieties and twists on Horchata throughout Latin America, so if you have tried one version before and didn’t like it, you can always try another one and your opinion might change.
Horchata is a versatile beverage and you can add different ingredients to it to change the taste – for example, you can add shredded coconut or almonds. You can also use different varieties of milk such as almond milk, if you are not able to drink cow’s milk.
I have so many memories growing up of going to the local taquerias with my siblings and other family members and ordering up a plate of delicious street tacos with a side of delicious Horchata – it was always a hit and something that I will always remember. Although I don’t live in Mexico anymore, I still am able to keep these memories with my by making these recipes and sharing them with my family here.
You probably already have all of the ingredients that you will need in your kitchen to make authentic Horchata. If you don’t already have them, don’t worry – they are easy to find and very inexpensive. This does take awhile to make, but it will definitely be worth it!
