I think this was a very good recipe. My wife also enjoyed drinking one. I think this will become a regular recipe we use when we want something a little different and unusual tasting, in a great way. I had never tried horchata, or heard of it before, this recipes has got me wanting to try an authentic mexican horchata now.

sounds like heaven!

I can't wait to try this! Horchata is something decadent that I think will be truly enhanced by using coffeemate.
