Orange Juice 'n Egger:In one word, delicious. Unless Ashley is saying it, in which case the word becomes vomit. Of course the Spanish have their own way of saying it "jugo de naranja con huevo". The drink is made exactly the way you're imagining, oranges are freshly squeezed by hand into a glass and complimented with a whole, raw, room temperature egg or two, your choice. No stirring required for this simple delicacy. In truth, it tasted like extra rich orange juice, until you got to the yolk which broke on my tongue delivering a strange yet complementary flavour. Mmm.
Corn Batter Delight:It's real name is Atol de Elote which, in English, means a corn drink made from cornflour. To me, it tasted somewhere between corn bread and muffin batter. It was warm, thick, sweet, battery, and had a nice bit of texture from the corn that was crumbled atop of every mug. It was delicious, warming, and filling all at once.
Ponche de Leche:I figured milk punch was a clever enough name that I didn't need to cheese it up. I have no idea what's actually in it, but if I had to guess I'd say milk was heated to a scald with cardamom and a bit of rice flour. They serve it warm with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Out of all the drinks we tried in Xela, I think this was our favourite. It tasted a bit like a chai tea latte... warm, soothing, and perfect for a cool rainy night.
Pineapple Soup:Not really a soup, but it is served with a small plastic spoon. I'm fairly sure it's just water, pineapple, papaya, and apple heated and served. They call it "caliente de frutas" meaning hot fruits. Tastes like warm apple cider. It's warm, but not boiled too long, as the fruit still have all their texture. I really enjoyed this drink, and give it a close second to the Ponche de Leche. Likewise, perfect for a cool rainy night after your shorts have been soaked through and your shoes flooded.
