This is one of my favorite photos of Guadalajara. These are different kinds of agua frescas, drinks. Aren't they pretty? The hot pink one intrigued me, and I found out it was Strawberry flavored horchata. Hmm...horchata. Tell me you've had it, right? Usually it's white and looks like milk. It's made from rice, sugar, ground almonds (sometimes), and cinnamon. It's very tasty and refreshing. AdRi's mom taught me how to make it by running rice through a blender until you have a powder, and then soaking it in water, and then straining it all through cheesecloth. But I had never seen PINK horchata. Alas, I didn't try it: I'm not the bravest street vendor eater. But they're so pretty! Other flavors included sandia (watermelon), tamarind, and hibiscus flower.
