This month on Picture Postcards we are taking a look at non-alcoholic drinks from around the world. Our contributor from Spain, Marta, wanted to share this photo of Horchata de chufa and a little bit of information. She says,

“Horchata de chufa is a refreshing drink from Valencia, Spain. It is made of tigernuts and is served cold during the summer throughout Spain. There is a Regulatory Council that ensures the quality and origin of the chufas with protected designation of origin. If you like almonds, hazelnuts and milk, you’ll probably like it, but it has a very peculiar taste, either you love it or hate it. Horchata can even replace milk for people who are lactose intolerant and its nutritional properties are excellent.”

Sounds good to me!
