Horchata is a Mexican drink made from finely grinding uncooked white rice and mixing it with water, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla. In Mexico, almonds, squash seeds, melons seeds, or milk are sometimes added. The idea was brought over by the Spaniards, who make Horchata with chufa (tigernuts).
This Strawberry Almond Horchata is now one of my favorite drinks. I love the addition of sliced strawberries (especially after they have been soaking in the horchata for a bit). I gave Evan some before adding the sugar and he also loved it.
