For this edition of #OnTapEats, I did a special review from inside Guaranteed Rate Field on Saturday night during the Chicago Cubs’ 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. As it turned out for us Sox fans, this may have been the most exciting part of the evening before I went to Cork and Kerry.
Sitting in the 300 section, I got to try the much-ballyhooed “Horchata Churro Milkshake.” Located at the “Sweet Shoppe” in the 300 section, this sweet sensation has quickly become one of the most popular new items on the stadium’s menu this season.
The Horchata Churro Milkshake Is Worth The Wait
You should be prepared to wait in line or get one of these early in the game if possible. I was in line after the fourth inning and they were already running low on supplies. I believe they gave me one of the last of the churros sticks.
The Horchata Churro Milkshake was worth the wait. It’s a delicious cinnamon-flavored milkshake with horchata made at the stadium. It’s topped with whipped cream, a cherry, and a very long churro.
The drink delivered all of the refreshing sweetness of a horchata drink along with the savory smooth ice cream. The churro, which has become a ballpark staple all by itself, is the perfect compliment to this drink.
On the outside, the churro has a crispy and delicious crust topped with cinnamon and sugar. But on the inside, is a nice soft, sweet, and warm dough.
You may initially scoff at the $11 price tag, but relative to the prices in the stadium for other drinks, this isn’t so bad. Plus, you get a lovely Chicago White Sox souvenir milkshake cup as a parting gift.
I’m not sure how many of the new items I’ll get to try this year at Guaranteed Rate but I’m glad I got my hands on this one. This shake will definitely bring the boys to the yard.
