Are you familiar with Horchata? A spiced rice milk drink, Horchata is popular in Mexican culture. Considered an aqua fresca (water refreshment). Served ice cold, this Horchata Martini is usually sweetened with cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. It is so delicious-to me it tastes like liquid rice pudding, and makes the perfect base for a sweet vodka martini!
You can purchase pre-made Horchata in the dairy section of my grocery stores (at least in the southwest). I may feature a recipe for making Horchata in the near future, as I would love to make it homemade.
- Ice Cubes
- 2 oz. Vanilla flavored Vodka
- 6 oz. Horchata
- Ground Cinnamon
Rim your martini glass before you pour the martini in. Sprinkle some cinnamon on a small plate and spread it around the plate.
Normally, you would rub fresh lemon along the rim to wet it before dipping, but you do not want lemon taste in your drink, so just use a little bit of water, and then dip the rim in the cinnamon.
Fill a cocktail tumbler with 8 oz of cubed ice. Add the vodka and Horchata and stir. Strain the martini into a cinnamon-rimmed martini glass, and dust the top of the martini with a bit more cinnamon. Enjoy!
