It’s been a little while since I’ve stopped in to La Cava del Tequila tucked into the Mexico pavilion. Upon seeing the Horchata Margarita spotted by a friend of Drinking Disney, I knew it was definitely time for another visit to the popular watering hole.
The Horchata Margarita is made with Exotico 100% agave premium silver Tequila, horchata liquor, agave nectar, agua de horchata and Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey served with a cinnamon and sugar rim. Mexican horachata is a beverage traditionally made with rice. The margarita is then topped with a healthy dose of cinnamon.
The Horchata Margarita seems a bit “heavier” than its fruitier counterparts. My first sip was reminiscent of a thin egg nog, primarily thanks to the cinnamon and whiskey flavors. After drinking it a bit more, the rice flavor became more prominent, reminding me more of a flavor similar to rice pudding. Because this margarita felt a bit more substantial and almost dessert-like, one would be my limit.
Matt ordered a Blood Orange Margarita, a concoction of El Mayor premium silver Tequila, orange liqueur, sweet-tart mix of blood orange juice and hibiscus syrup, topped with wild berry foam and served on the rocks. I’ve enjoyed the sweet-tart margarita in the past, and this time in particular it was made STRONG. Matt took his first sip and was a bit surprised himself! If you’re looking for a refreshing change of pace from a standard margarita and like some tartness in your drink, give this one a try.
And of course, we needed some chips and salsa to help soak up that alcohol! It served with two salsas (the menu simply reads “Chipotle Salsa”). One is quite mild with a cilantro flavor, while the other has a bit of heat. I like bothm but prefer the latter. 🙂
