It's sweet, invigorating, and absolutely delightful. It's the sole reason summer even exists.

Its name and ingredients vary throughout several Latin American countries and it is often made with ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, tigernuts, or barley.

The version most commonly found in the U.S., however, is rice-based, and it will honestly change 👏🏽 your 👏 life. 👏🏽

This deliciousness is made by soaking rice and cinnamon in water for a couple of hours (or overnight).

The mix is then blended thoroughly and strained through either a cheesecloth or strainer into a larger container.

Vanilla extract, sugar, milk, condensed milk, and whatever else your heart desires is then added in order to transform this drink from great to INCREDIBLE.

You can easily pair it up with bomb-ass tacos...

...or just cradle it like a newborn baby.

You can booze it up...

There's a reason it's called an agua fresca, because it truly is fresca AF.

So if you find yourself breaking a sweat this summer, seek out a horchata. Your thirst will thank you. ❤️
