Horchata – a song by Vampire Weekend

10 Sep

I happened to Google “What is horchata?” and a Yahoo answer caught my eye:

“What does horchata taste like?”

The answer given to him:

Horchata varies in taste across Latin America. Although the drinks may share the same name, the flavor of each is unique to its country of origin.

So Yahoo user…what DOES horchata taste like? Heaven. Sweet Heaven with a side of nap. You know that five minute nap where you managed to get a short dream inĀ and wake up feeling recharged? Well that.

I am Hispanic and have had a large share of horchatas but this song Horchata I have not. Yet somehow, Vampire Weekend managed to create a melody that described my very own horchata flavor: sweet heaven with a side of nap.
