Whats This Drink ???

Our next door neighbors have brought over some wonderful traditional xmas foods and drink to us over the last week. We have had some asskicking pupusas and today they brought over a mug of a traditional drink. It is made with corn and cinnamon that we know for sure. Wife says they taste like a cinnamon cloud with a corn back taste. and a citrus taste also. Texture is of a thin hot pudding.

Anyone have a clue as to what they are called?

Our neighbors are from El Salvador

Yes but the kid who brought it didn't know what it was called. Same kid who didn't know what to call pupusas. Will ask the folks when we see them but thought others might know.

?? probably Horchata, we had some in Playa, it tasted like Swedeish Rice pudding, but liquid. Very good too.

Horchata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is Atole and it is traditionally served around the time of the posadas. Did you like it? I'm not a fan and we generally stick to brewing up batches of ponche.

Might have been Atole There are different variations of Atole

definitely not Horchata

my aunt makes Champurado for the holidays, to go with the tamales.... it is made with "masa" and piloncillo... I'm not really a fan of it, why would you want to get full from your drink when there is so many tamales to eat!

Where do you get ponche in Playa? I've only seen it on the west coast. But then I guess I haven't looked for it elsewhere.
