Sabor De Morro (1 review)
I decided to continue my mind trip to our neighbors to the south with this beverage. No, I’m not drinking apple soda and this back to back, I’m just writing the reviews at the same time.
For those of you who are not familiar with horchata (I’m expecting that to be the majority of you reading this), turn off your computer, make your way to the closest authentic Mexican restaurant to you (of course Chipotle doesn’t count!) and order yourself the biggest glass possible. You don’t even need to know what it is. You have the assurance of the Thirsty Dudes that you will love it. Actually if you are lactose intolerant or vegan ignore that order because you will either get really sick or the vegan police will come after you. If that is the case, we assure you that you will not love the way you feel after drinking it.
Horchata is rice, milk and spices (mostly cinnamon) in Mexican culture. Other countries have their own varieties, but the Mexican version is the only one I have ever tried. I admit, it doesn’t sound too appealing, but something happens when those ingredients are mixed together that is magical. It still has a slight rice flavor, but nothing horrible. Actually none of the flavors are too overbearing. They all mix together and live in food racial food harmony.
I’ve only ever had one prepackaged horchata before, and it was a bit on the gross side. If it’s not coming from one of those constantly churning drink machines that used to always be in restaurants, but that you don’t see too often anymore…well then I would tend to avoid it. My friend Ian bought me this when we were on tour together, and I’m glad he did, because it’s one of the best horchatas I’ve had. It tastes like it came right from the machine. Everything is in perfect balance (unlike my last prepackaged one). Now I really want to eat a burrito. Too bad it’s so late and I’m too lazy to make one.
