Horchata

There is a random sports blog that I read and today I saw an endorsement for one of my favorite drinks...this is what it said...


"So, in the spirit of completely random endorsements, I’d like to take a few moments to endorse the finest non-alcohoilc drink on the planet: Horchata.


The usual description of Horchata is “rice-cinnamon drink,” but that doesn’t begin to touch upon what it is to experience this heaven-sent elixir made in buckets by illegal aliens at Mexican taquerias. What’s Horchata? Take the flavor of a nice, soft churro, mix in the addictiveness of crack cocaine, and somehow turn it into an ice-cold drink. It is the perfectly sweet companion (for your palate AND your digestive tract) to tostadas, gigantic burritos, authentic soft-shell tacos, or whatever else you’ve loaded with fiery tomatillo salsa.

Listen to me, people. I’m a barely functioning alcoholic. But when I get Mexican food, I skip the Dos Equis and Pacifico and order a Horchata (an Horchata? Dang Spanish).
DANG IT IT’S SO DELICIOUS! I need it RIGHT NOW! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

***runs six blocks to nearest taqueria

HORCHATA! HORCHATA NOW! GIVE IT TO ME!!! ÁNDALE!!!"


This blog uses a lot of choice words...so I did edit this posting to not feature those said choice words. Anyway...I thought it was too funny that those guys actually knew what it was and love it as much as I do. If you do not know what it is...do look for an authentic mexican taqueria and they should have it for you to try.
