I made this drink for my mother and she loved it. She'd keep it in the fridge and have a glass each night. The only downside was the rice was very thick and gave my blender a lot of trouble!
My step-father came this week-end for a short visit. As my Review Title states, he is from Mexico; so I decided to surprise him with this recipe. I've had it at his home in Mexico and he even said that this was very close to his mothers recipe. And I do have to admit...he is correct. There is some minor tweaks to do on this...he will forward the recipe to me so that I may submit it for you. OHHHHH, so close -but tastes so good. Two-thumbs up on this!
I've lived in Mexico and my family has been attempting to find Horchata since. This recipe is deliciously close to the rich taste of the rice drink that reminds us of the wonderful times we had in Chihuahua. It really was not that complicated but I would recommend the cheesecloth...you need it to truly extract the extra thick rice particles and just get the juices.
this is pretty good I like to put vanilla in this beverage and that makes it really good! It also very easy to make too!
This is one of the greatest drink ever, this drink has been a tradition in our families, is really good. You must try it!
friends from Mexico City could not believe I could make horchata exactly as they do. an absolutely delicious drink.
I made this Horchata recipe & it tasted 100 times better than the one I had at a restaurant!
