Horch-what-ata?!

The word is Horchata. The flavor is undeniable. The feeling is euphoric.

It is simply a tasty cinnamon, rice water lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar.

It sounds like a tongue twister to some, a memory to others and a new found favorite for many! Horchata is a memory from your tropical vacation to the Yucatan Peninsula. It’s a holiday with the family together making tamales! It’s a yummy dessert when you’re watching your calories! (One of our female employees really loves that one!)

Horchata is our newest flavor and we invite you to try our decadent, delightful and delicious Aguas.  Try it and Love it like we do!
