Taco Mesa & Taco Rosa become the first in Orange County to offer traditional Valencia-style horchatas made with organic tiger nuts. Launching on Cinco de Mayo, the new Original Horchatería menu will feature signature horchatas infused with superfoods like turmeric, ashwagandha, maca, and cacao.
Tiger nuts are naturally sweet, vegan, GMO-free, gluten-free, nut-free, allergen-free, dairy-free and a powerful source of prebiotic fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin E. West African countries consider tiger nut milk an aphrodisiac. The perfect “milk” consistency is achieved by soaking the tiger nuts with whole cinnamon sticks for 48 hours. The saturated nuts are rinsed and ground with alkalized artisan water and strained through a cheesecloth; they are then infused with superfoods and spices.
Priced between $4 and $6, the Original Horchatería menu features several signature tiger nut-based, agave-sweetened horchatas, including these superfood-infused blends:
Original – cinnamon, agave & vanilla
Golden - original horchata with turmeric, ginger & pepper
Dirty - original horchata blended with espresso
Mayan - original horchata infused with Mexican chocolate, maca & ashwagandha
