In December drinking horchata…

horchata-2…I look psychotic in a balaclava!

We’d grown quite partial to the Mexican drink horchata during our holiday in the states. So when I found this recipe on trotski & ash I just had to try it! It’s essentially a sweetened rice and nut milk drink with a hint of cinnamon – served best with tons of ice and a taco in the other hand!

Trotski & ash are a couple of girls from Melbourne who are passionate about wholesome, homely food with a vintage feel. Their recipes are delicious and easy to follow, and their blog a joy to read. You can feel yourself get hungrier and hungrier with every post! They’ve just recently released a 2013 calendar, filled with gorgeous photos and recipes, and its pages can be deconstructed into recipe cards at the end of the year – do I feel a Christmas present idea coming on? Be sure to check them out!

P.S. If you’re a bit stumped by the title of this post check out this song by Vampire Weekend!
