The Spanish love cold snacks, as is underlined by the many ice-cream parlours you’ll see. Typically Spanish is horchata, a delicious, refreshing drink for the warm summer months. The drink is also popular around Christmas, when people dip turrón, a kind of nougat, in their horchata. In Barcelona you’ll find the drink under orxata, its Catalan name.
The Spanish horchata, a milky, white drink that originates in Valencia, is made with water, sugar and chufas (earth almonds, tiger nuts). The perfect horchata is sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste and should be served ice cold. Many bars and restaurants in Barcelona make their own; even more delicious! If you see a sign with ‘Hay horchata’ it means they have home-made horchata on the menu.
