Very simple and sweet drink
1 cup uncooked long grain rice (no substitute) *Do not rinse*
5 cup water
2 cinnamon sticks

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar (you can add more to taste)

Step 1: Break, Drown, Wait, Strain
Break up the rice in a blender or coffee grinder
Add the water and cinnamon sticks
Cover and leave in room temperature for at least 3hrs (I left mine overnight)
Strain using a fine mesh strainer (or cheese cloth)
Discard the rice (or make rice pudding with it)
Step 2: Add the Rest of Ingredients
Mix in Milk, Sugar, and Vanilla
(1/2 a can of condensed milk can be use instead of milk and sugar for a creamier horchata)
Step 3: Chill and Enjoy
If you have a large family or want to make this for a party, you'll want to double or triple the recipe.
