Horchata – Sweet Rice Drink


Horchata comes from Spain. However, like most things that came to the American Continent in the 1600-1800’s it changed over time. The original recipe featured ingredients like barley, almonds, sesame seeds, or tigernuts. Now, the Horchata served at local parties comes from a mixture of rice and cinnamon.

My aunt used to bring horchata, limonada (a type of lemonade), and sangria to every family gathering. Recipes like these circulate from family to family and can provide many happy memories.
