While the drink can be made in a variety of ways, it's usually made with milk or water. It's also DELICIOUS AF.

Initial thoughts:

Alex Alvarez: "I don't think I've ever tried cold brew, but I'm thinking coffee with horchata will either be delicious or a combination made in hell, like coffee and pumpkin spice."

Norberto Briceño: "My body is ready. That is all."

Jazmin Ontiveros: "I'm obsessed with horchata AND iced coffee. I have big expectations for this drink."

Thoughts: "I didn't taste any coffee in mine, oddly, but I did get a LOT of gingerbread flavor. The whole thing tasted really Christmas-y, with lots of spices. I can picture someone (me) sipping this while wrapped in a blanket by the Christmas tree."

Thoughts: "This tastes like a Christmas bomb going off in my mouth. I'm getting a strong taste of God's joyful tears with just a hint of coffee. This drink is dope AF. Starbucks ain't got shit on this."
