While I was in Vegas years ago, my friends Walt and Peggy turned me on to horchata at their favorite Mexican restaurant. Unfortunately every time I go to a local Mexican restaurant, they "didn't make horchata that day".

Being made from rice, I figured I could try my hand at making it myself.

I used this recipe and it was a piece of cake with the Vitamix. The horchata was the perfect pairing with grilled quesadilla and Mexican corn. I'm going to try some of the other recipes I found for a taste comparison.


  1. Whaaaat? Here in Spain horchata is usually made from chufas. You should give it a try... It's sooooo good!

    1. I don't even know what a chufas is or if I can get it. I'll have to google it!
