In Spain, horchata is usually referred to as orxatade xufa (horchata de chufa), made from tigernuts, water, and sugar. Originally from Valencia, the idea of making horchata from tigernuts comes from the period of Muslim presence in Valencia (from the eighth to thirteenth centuries). • It is served ice cold as a natural refreshment in the summer, often served with fartons. Tigernuthorchata is also used in place of milk by the lactose intolerant. In Latin America, horchatavaries in taste across Latin America. The flavor of each is unique to its country of origin. • While in some countries the drink is usually tan and "milky", some recipes call for milk, and others do not. Other ingredients often include sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.

Horchata, together with tamarindo and jamaica, are the three typical drink flavors of Mexicanaguasfrescas. • In Guatemala, horchata is made of rice, sometimes with vanilla and always with cinnamon. • The horchata found in the south of Honduras and in El Salvador is primarily made from morro seeds, not rice. Other common ingredients include ground cocoa, cinnamon, sesame seeds, nutmeg, tigernuts and vanilla. Other nuts that may also be used include peanuts, almonds and cashews. Because of these ingredients, the horchata is usually strained before serving. • In Nicaragua and Honduras, horchata refers to the drink known as semilla de jicaro, made from the jicaro seeds ground with rice and spices. The drink is made with cold milk and sugar, and is very popular nationally. Recently, Nicaragua has begun exporting this product, primarily to the United States.
In Puerto Rico, horchata is called horchata de ajonjolí and made with ground sesame seeds. Water is boiled with sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon sticks. When done the water is poured over the ground sesame seeds and left over night. The water is then squeezed through a cheese cloth; when done evaporated milk or milk is added. Some recipes call for added ground rice, ground almonds, coconut milk, allspice and rum. Horchata with barley and lime zest is also popular, but mainly in homes. • In Venezuela, horchata is made with sesame seeds, water and sugar in the western area, Zulia. There is also chicha, made with rice flour, milk and sugar.
