Take some rice and cinnamon. Mix them together, and then let them soak for a nice and long time—at least 24 hours. When it’s ready, pull it out of the fridge, top it off with creamy milk, and serve. What is it tasty concoction we speak of? Well it’s horchata of course! Horchata is a delicious (and refreshing!) traditional Mexican drink that goes so well with all of your favorite Mexican food dishes. This tasty beverage is one of Cafe Rio Mexican Grill’s favorites to serve and one customer’s really enjoy too! It’s phenomenal, especially when paired with that juicy barbacoa pork burrito—but what you may not know is horchata is even better for you than you may think. That horchata you love to slurp down with your delicious Mexican dishes packs a big secret. |
So belly up to the Mexican food restaurant we all love, drop in a straw, and slurp it up amigo: because the cinnamon that makes our horchata taste so good also has a few secret health benefits too! Luckily for you, each cup is packed full of enough cinnamon to make you even healthier than Superman. Why you ask? Well, studies are showing that cinnamon can boost the health of your heart, plus lower your blood sugar levels significantly! And we at Cafe Rio think that’s likely to keep you living longer. And how long can you live? Well, that all depends—how many Cafe Rio Mexican grill restaurants can you visit to drink our famous horchata?
Some very smart people wrote a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and they noticed the effects of cinnamon in clinical trials (though they used pudding with cinnamon, instead of horchata--but no one is perfect, right?) And while it’s definitely good science, researchers don't know exactly how it works. But as far as we can tell, a large to-go cup on your next date night could start making your blood flow faster than the Rio Grande.
Haven’t yet tried the famous horchata from Cafe Rio’s? Well if that’s the case, it’s about time you find a location near you and drink up! You will soon start to feel your blood rev up and your heart pound. And you just smile when your girlfriend asks you why you are feeling so frisky all the sudden.
