One of my favorite recent discoveries is Horchata. I had never had it before, but I tell you, there’s almost nothing better than sitting in the sun sipping on a giant glass of horchata.

Proof positive here:

And now I can make my own! My quality of life just got so much better.

And it’s really easy.

Just note, you have to start this recipe three hours before you want it, because there’s a wait time!
