Horchata margaritas coming to Taco Cabana for the holidays


Do you:

1) like margaritas?

2) like horchata?

If you answered yes to both of those questions, then Taco Cabana’s newest alcoholic beverage might be the treat you’re looking for as Christmas gets a little closer on the calendar. Starting Nov. 20,  the fast food chain will add a horchata margarita to its menu. The drink will be available through the end of the year.

According to Taco Cabana, the horchata margarita blends horchata, Lunazul Tequila and Triple Sec. It’s rimmed with cinnamon sugar.  Ho ho ho, y’all.

If you’re looking for a more local spin on the idea, Austin360’s Arianna Auber wrote earlier this year about Eldorado Cafe’s horchata cocktails. And don’t forget about the Christmas-themed pop-up bar coming to Austin after Thanksgiving.
