lrg__dsc0692

Horchata is a favorite request of Gelly and Jack. It’s definitely not a ‘lemonade’ refreshing drink but more of a rich dessert drink. It is comparable with eggnog. With this recipe, you can make a horchata latte by replacing your milk with it or a sweet cocktail by adding a couple of shots of rum. you can also change the milk with whatever you prefer but I like using evaporated milk for this recipe. It is definitely a treat. Hope you like it! =D
