spanish drink recipes - horchata de arroz ...

Horchata is a delicious, well-known, non-alcoholic drink in Spain - originally from the Valencia area.

However, it's usually made out of chufas or tiger nuts.

But the recipe below is rather unusual, for it's an horchata made from rice - not the usual tiger nuts - and is popular in Mexico.

Use short-grained, pudding rice.

And, with this recipe, you can use all the lemon peel - pith included - but remember to remove before liquidising.

Check out also our wonderful Spanish recipes page, where you'll find tasty recipes to accompany your horchata de arroz.
