This traditional Mexican beverage is sweet and refreshing.
Horchata is a Mexican drink made with rice and is flavored with cinnamon and sweetened with sugar. It is especially meant to drink along with tacos or any kind of spicy Mexican food, since it has a refreshing and soothing taste to your tongue after the havocs the chile and ají will cause to your mouth, although that doesn’t mean you can drink it at lunch, dinner or even accompanying any snack.

In Mexico, this fresh water is prepared with soaked and ground grains of rice; later, they are mixed with sweetened water and cinnamon. In some regions, vanilla, milk or coconut juice is added, explains the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Mexican Gastronomy.
Horchata water is also made with other fruits, cereals, and seeds, such as melon seeds, almonds, oats or coyol.
Although they all share the Spanish influence of tiger nut horchata, the Mexican versions have developed their unique touch over the years and are already distinguished from the original elaboration. For this reason, horchata water maintains its special place in Mexican cuisine.
