Horchata is a creamy rice based drink and it is muy delicioso!
1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
5 cups water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbsp mexican vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
2/3 cup granulated sugar
Blend rice and water together until the rice begins to break up (1 minute). Let this rice/ water mixture sit for a minimum of 3 hours. Strain the rice water into a pitcher and add the milk. vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir and serve chilled.
This recipe takes about 10 minutes to prep and a little over 3 hours until its ready to serve. Hope you give it a try.
Anyone else have any Cinco De Mayo traditions? Thinking about starting any? I'll try to remember to take some pictures as I make the rest of the dinner so I can share those recipes too!
