Ingredients

2 cups long grain white rice
7 cups filtered water
2 4-inch-long sticks of cinnamon
2 cups milk
Sugar to taste


Soak the rice in 3 cups of water for 2 hours


Break up the cinnamon with a mallet (you don't need to pulverize it, but break it into smallish chunks). Toast the cinnamon over medium heat in a small skillet until slightly toasted.


Drain the rice and grind in a blender or food processor with the toasted cinnamon and milk.


Pour the rice/cinnamon/milk mixture through a large mesh strainer into a pitcher. Use a spoon to press the mixture to get every last bit of moisture out. Discard pressed rice.


Add 4 cups of cold water to pitcher and add sugar to taste.

Notes

Horchata is a ground rice drink that is popular in Mexico (and I'm told Spain?). I love it! It os one of my favorite parts about Mexico. Unfortunately, not many state-side Mexican restaurants sell it. This is a little time-consuming to make but well worth it....particularly if you are an Horchata lover like me. :-)

I have been wanting to learn how to make this for years!!!! Thank you for posting - it was terrific!
