Different types of horchata

Sarah C | Mar 22, 2001 11:46 AM

Can anyone tell me the difference between Mexican horchata and the Central American (Salvadorean?) horchata? Mexican horchata is generally made from rice, almonds, cinnamon, and vanilla, I believe. The Central American horchata contains a different flavor that I find unpleasant, but I haven't been able to identify what the different ingredient could be.
