It's finally getting hot outside and we all know what that means....well, one of the things that Summer|hot weather means to me is drinking lots of yummy cold Horchata. It's been one of my favorite things I discovered in college, thanks to having a Mexican roommate (Love you Lupita)! If you've never had any, it's basically rice milk with cinnamon and it is quite the treat. You can find it at many Mexican restaurants (type "horchata" into Yelp to find one), meat markets, in powder mix-form (Hispanic aisle of grocery stores) or just make some from scratch (Martha's easy version).
Thanks to my friend Veronica, here's my new favorite Summer jam:
Yes, they sing about it being "Winter" and "December..." but, it does mention "Horchata" too and the serene beats make me want to have my feet in a pool. It's also over 3 years old, but it's a new Summer jam to me :)
