For those of us in Australia who own and love Vampire Weekend's new album 'Contra', here is the answer to a question I have been asking myself - and you may have too...

What on earth is Horchata?

Mexican Horchata
A refreshing cold drink made of rice, almonds, cinnamon (canella), lime zest and sugar. This drink is rumored to be a cure for a hangover and is frequently served at breakfast time. Even though the drink has a milky appearance it is completely dairy-free.

So there you go - never say you don't learn anything at CHALK & TALK! Apparently Horchata is commonly served with massive long donut thingys called Fartuos - it's sounding better and better.
