Sorry for the long delay between posts, we have been helping our friends refinish the floors in their new house and time got away from me. But now I'm back online and planing out some yummy meals!

Recently I was beginning to feel a bit homesick for food and drinks from my hometown in Arizona... Really just good Mexican food, Mario and I would go to our favorite mexican food shop and order some yummy burritos and a large glass of horchata to share. 

So after much research and two batches of horchata to really make this recipe perfect. We sipped on this delicious rice drink that taste pretty close to what we loved back in Tucson. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as Mario and I do. It's on my list of summers drinks that I'm planing on making a lot this summer


  1. Hi Michelle! I really like your horchata recipe. I used to work for some people from Jalisco and one of the things I had tho do is make horchata.
    Me, I was born I Key West so I was like "heck yeah!!". Your recipe is really close to how my friend Leticia taught me. I think my grandmother put a few drops of lime in place of salt. Cubans..lol
    I was wondering, may I share this on Pinterest?

  2. Oooo lime is a great idea! I will have to try that next time I make it! And yes! Feel free to share on Pinterest ��
