Horchata Iced Coffee is the ultimate summer pick me up. Horchata iced coffee made with horchata, cold brewed coffee and plenty of ice is creamy, dreamy and hits the spot on a sizzling summer day.
For my coffee lovers out there my horchata iced coffee is delicious, simple to make and is the perfect afternoon recharge.
I adore horchata. We make it often at casita gris to sip throughout the weekend with our meals and in our Cafecito. Bring on Sunday brunch café!
Horchata (pronounced or-CHAH-tah) is a Mexican drink made with rice. Flavored with cinnamon, sugar or nuts and seeds, this creamy beverage is popular served over ice in summer.
Horchata is a dreamy, creamy rice-based Mexican drink that is can be found in any taqueria here in South Texas. South Texans drink gallons and gallons of Horchata throughout the year, but in Summertime it is especially popular.
Have you tried adding horchata to your iced coffee?
It’s soooo good! It adds a touch of creaminess to your iced coffee, with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Served over ice it is my new afternoon pick me up.
For Sunday brunch I rim my glass with honey and dark brown sugar for an extra special touch. Also, feel free to add a splash of tequila or mezcal for a boozy spin.
If you would like to serve warm simply combine coffee and horchata in a slow cooker or saucepan simmer on low. My slow cooker horchata latte is also a fantastic addition to your brunch table.
