Horchata, not a tapa but certainly worth a mention here, one because a new variety has just been introduced to the market and two, because it is a very enjoyable non alcoholic drink. (especially in the summer)
Horchata is different...the most important thing to mention is that it should always be served cold - the colder the better! Imagine a milkshake in the summer.. horchata is similar in consistancy but being made from "chufas" (tiger nuts) it is very refreshing and also healthy. Locals over here swear by it for an upset stomach too although how far true that is we dont know!
The new horchata: Artisan blend containing more tiger nuts. Very similar to the original but a more concentrated flavour - Lovely.
