We talk about drinking coconuts all the time for hydration and over well-being, but this local drink rocks it! For those on a gluten-free diet, this could become your next drink of choice. Horchata is a cold rice based drink that is flavored with cinnamon and vanilla. Rice is soaked to create a milk like liquid (think rice milk) and blended with vanilla, cinnamon and a sweeter. If you are thirsty, this is a great thirst quencher. If you are looking for a local, cheap, delicious drink, this is it! We love horchata and recommend it to anyone looking to try a local specialty.
Check out Tulum where you can try horchata with your lunch or dinner. Horchata is found all over Mexico but we happened to have it today in Tulum.
