Horchata²

Recently we posted a recipe for the Latin rice based drink called Horchata. This easy to make recipe seems to be catching on in wider circles – the drink seems to have become a popular trend. The unique and sweet flavor of Horchata seems to be very adaptable, easily translated into desserts (cupcakes, flan) and even cocktails.

According to the Horchata wikipedia page a cocktail called the Rice Rocket is made in some Hispanic bars in Southern California:

Rice Rocket

  • 2 parts Horchata
  • 1 part Malibu (or coconut flavor rum)
  • Dash of Goldschlager (Italian cinnamon schnapps)

Combine first two ingredients over ice, finish with a dash of Goldschlager.

Another variation comes from the EdibleBrooklyn.com website where they have published the “Beso” Horchata Cocktail created by Carino Restaurant & Cantina located in the Williamsburg area of NYC.

Carino’s “Beso” Horchata Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz. Jimador Blanco Tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Kahlua
  • 2 oz. Horchata

Shake all three ingredients well, and pour into a chilled martini glass or a rocks glass with ice.
