Horchata Made Easy

It can be hard to find good horchata, but it's also easy to make it on your own. Try this for the week of Cinco de Mayo. 


1c. uncooked white long-grain rice

5c. water

1/2c. milk

½ T. vanilla extract

½ T. ground cinnamon

⅔c. white sugar



1. Pour the rice and water into the blender; blend until the rice just begins to break up (about 1 minute). Let rice and water stand at room temperature for a minimum of three hours, if you can leave it overnight that works even better.

2. Strain the rice water into a pitcher and discard the rice. Stir the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar into the rice water. Chill and stir before serving over rice. Original recipe makes 6 cups.
