As we were planning our trip to Spain for this past July, our good friends Jen and James gave us a great suggestion.
“You must try horchata!”
Horchata? The Wikipedia entry explained that it is a beverage made from tigernuts.
In Barcelona, we found a cafe advertising horchata. We entered and ordered one to share. We were much more excited than the woman who served us, as evidenced from the photo above.
Verdict? Yummy (me) or “umm… you can have the rest” (Husband). It reminded me of homemade almond milk, with very small bits of nut discernible, and not too sweet.
