Horchata—a beverage typically made from ground rice, almonds, sesame seeds, barley, and/or tiger nuts—is popular in South America, Spain, and Puerto Rico. It can be made with countless different ingredients and the base will not always be the same, but the drink itself almost always resembles a creamy, cinnamon-flavored delicious milkshake!

This recipe is a great start for creating your own personalhorchata. Feel free to spice it up with nutmeg, cocoa, or even other nuts like peanuts and cashews. Enjoy cold or hot; both are equally tasty!
