Best Aguas Frescas - 2012
This Mexican restaurant pours one of the most authentic-tasting glasses of horchata (a blended rice water) we've had in a long time. Unlike most of the horchata you find — dispensed from a machine and almost too sweet to drink without adding extra water — this refreshing beverage has an earthy rice and cinnamon flavor and is scooped out of a giant water jug.It's the same for the rest of the aguas frescas that complement the tasty meals at Birrieria Obregon. They come in four other made-fresh-daily flavors — cebada (barley), jamaica, limón, and piña. The pineapple and lemon drinks have bits of fresh fruit floating in the glass — further proof that these are authentic, homemade, and not mixed from powder.
