A few weeks ago, Anna commented on my recipe for Horchata and asked where the recipe for my Horchata Arroz con Leche (Rice Pudding) that I promised to post was. (Anna, I hope you’re following so you see this, and sorry for the delay!) Horchata, if you’re not familiar, is a Mexican Aguas Fresca, a cool, creamy, cinnamony rice-based beverage. It’s so much better than it sounds; it’s absolutely delish, refreshing but with a little substance.
I was introduced to Horchata Mexican Rice Drink, Horchata de Arroz (glad to meet you!) late in life, which is a bit of a shame as it is the perfect thing to drink with Mexican food. (Well, other than Margaritas.) Horchata is cool and light, barely sweet, and this is my version.
