Recipe Description
Thick, rich, and supremely satisfying, quaker is the ultimate fruit nectar. The drink is named after the manufacturer of its principle ingredient, oats. Quaker belongs to an extended family of sweet, nonalcoholic grain based drinks that includes Mexican Aqua de horchata. For an easy alternative, I use an orange, and honey replaces the traditional sugar.
