Who doesn’t love french toast on a lovely weekend morning? I always enjoy a bit of cinnamon in my french toast so I was immediately on board with a recipe that involved horchata!
Horchata is a traditional Mexican drink made from rice, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. One of the most popular brands of horchata liquor is RumChata. RumChata is produced in Wisconsin, so I’m not sure if it is popular in my area simply because it is made in a neighboring state and therefore is fairly local or if it is gaining popularity in other regions as well. To me, it tastes an awful lot like the milk leftover after eating a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and I have heard many others describe it in a similar fashion. So chances are if you like that creamy, cinnamon milk, you will like horchata.
