Drink, Eat, Dream, Wear: Spiked Horchata









Melissa Odabash dress, Felix Rey clutch, Rachel Zoe sandals

Who else is ready for the weekend? It's supposed to be sunny in San Francisco and I'm ready to have a relaxing gourmet Mexican meal in the courtyard dining area of my apartment complex. Usually I would be mixing Margaritas, but this time I'm going to go big and try some refreshing horchata (with a nice helping of rum, of course). I'll be eating shrimp and duck tacos (don't worry, I'm not cooking...) and day dreaming of relaxing on a mystical beach. 

Directions: 
Go to your nearest authentic Mexican restaurant and buy as much Horchata as your heart desires. Then when you get home pour it in a pretty pitcher and add Captain Morgan rum to taste. Now all you need to do is add ice and a cinnamon stick to each guests glass and you're done:) If you want to be fancy and make your own Horchata (which I won't be doing), I suggest trying this recipe.
