This wonderful ethnic drink,is a combination of rice,water,milk,sugar,cinamon and vanilla.
While at a Mexican restaurant yesterday we had a huge taco salad and this this delicious
drink called a HORCHATA. This was a first for me...tasting this wonderful ice cold beverage.
Served with a dipper from a huge glass bowl
loaded with ice cubes.
I fell in love! So naturally I asked the waitress for the recipe.She obliged by writing it out on a napkin.
Here is her simple version that I
re-created today for you to enjoy.
