Introduction: Horchata

Very simple and sweet drink


1 cup uncooked long grain rice (no substitute) *Do not rinse*

5 cup water

2 cinnamon sticks

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup milk

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

*Note. If you want the drink to be creamier, substitute milk and sugar with 1/2 a can of condensed milk

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.
