Here is a soothing drink filled with fun flavors that are perfect for autumn or any day of the year. It mixes a cinnamon-flavored tequila with horchata and passion fruit. The result is an intriguing semi-creamy, spicy, fruity cocktail that works unbelievably well. It really is worth trying at least once.

Horchata is likely the ingredient that needs a little explanation and you will find a link to both a good description and a homemade recipe below. Basically, it is a rice drink that is traditional in Mexico and is likened to spiced milk with a longer shelf-life. You can find it ready made at many international grocers.

If I was to substitute anything for real horchata in this drink it would probably be RumChata, which was inspired by the traditional drink. Though it is a dairy liqueur, it is readily available and mixes nicely with cinnamon and fruits.
