Cafe du Horchata

Abigail Gullo, Compère Lapin | New Orleans

Abigail Gullo’s buzz-y riff on horchata mixes homemade horchata with cinnamon, rum, Cathead Pecan Vodka and the bar’s cold-brew coffee.

Pro-tip: As Gullo recommends, it can be mixed with her Cajun Coquito for fall-ready “spice delight.”
