Mexican flavors meet espresso in this sweet and smooth Iced Horchata Latte. Made with brown rice, almonds, cinnamon and Nespresso this drink recipe will be the most refreshing start to your day all summer long!
I mean these days I’ll admit that I rarely pay for coffee thanks to a never-ending supply from Nespresso (I know, I know SO grateful!), but I will jump at any opportunity to get some free brew.
Let’s just say I was a nightmare to my previous employer when they installed a Nespresso machine…
That’s probably because I do.
When Nespresso’s newest lungo grand cru, Envivo Lungo, arrived at my door I could tell I had stirred up a bit of jealousy amongst my building management. I appear to be a coffee hoarder. Likely because I am a coffee hoarder.
So clearly I have some making up to do.
Fortunately, Nespresso is far more generous than I am and is offering up FREE COFFEE to my Toronto peeps as part of Taste of Toronto. Starting this Thursday June 23 until Sunday June 26th the Nespresso Booth will be serving up their newest Envivo Lungo from 12:00-4:00 PM and Arpeggio Decaffeinato from 6:00-10:00 PM. Oh and free canapes too! Can I get a hellllll yeah?!
But I didn’t want those of you not in Toronto to feel left out. So I made you this Iced Horchata Latte mix, which I proceeded to down in 2 days (remember that coffee problem I had?).
I can’t promise you free coffee, but I can promise you an incredible iced latte that tastes like heaven in a cup. Forgive me?
- Add rice, almonds, cinnamon sticks and 2 cups of water to a large jar or jug. Let stand overnight or for at least 8 hours.

- Strain mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.
- Sweeten mixture with maple syrup, to taste
- Add ice to four glasses and add a cup of horchata to eat glass.
- Top with a shot of espresso lungo and serve immediately.
