Torito is a traditional drink, with origins in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Its creamy and sweet texture makes it the perfect complement to enjoy after a long day of work, because as its name says, it gives you enough energy to recharge your batteries and have the power of a “bull”, hence its name.
Preparing it is very easy! Here we leave you the recipe for 2 cups or glasses:
In a blender add all ingredients and blend until you create a smooth, cream-colored mixture. Then, transfer the drink to a pitcher with a lid and refrigerate until your Torito is very cold, and ready, you can enjoy it!
As a recommendation, we suggest adding ice to achieve a frappé-like texture so that the vanilla flavor can stand out more on your palate.
Traditional American Eggnog.
A drink that you have to try! Eggnog is a popular egg-based drink, that you can enjoy it in the morning or at night, for its cold and sweetened touch. Here we leave you the recipe for approximately 4 people!
The first thing you need to do to bring your Eggnog to life is to separate the egg whites from the yolks and add them to a large bowl with the powdered sugar. Mix until the sugar is completely integrated and you get a frothy mixture.
Then add the 2 cups of milk to a saucepan along with the cream and vanilla. Put it on low heat and wait for it to boil.
Now, add this new mixture of milk and cream to the bowl of egg yolks and whisk quickly to integrate both mixtures, avoiding the egg to cut. Repeat this procedure until you have fully integrated the two mixtures.
Once you have a single mixture, pour it into a saucepan over very low heat for approximately 30 minutes to obtain a thick consistency. Finally, after the established time, remove from the stove and serve in cups with a pinch of cinnamon sprinkled on top. Now you can enjoy an authentic American Eggnog!
For fans of Vodka and Vanilla! You can’t miss the opportunity to try an authentic combination with this recipe. Ideal to enjoy on a night out with friends.
In a shaker add all the ingredients listed and mix for about 5 minutes to integrate everything correctly. Finally, serve the mixture in a special Martini glass and garnish to taste with an orange peel. Share with your friends!
