Thank you for posting! I have been craving horchata and made this up today. Loved it. It was satisfying and delicious. The person who said it was gross is the one that doesn't know what their talking about. I used 2% milk and sugar, as suggested in the recipe and it turned out great! This will definitely be a recipe I turn to whenever I have that craving again.

This was so good! I grew up in southern California drinking this stuff in the summer with my brother. after moving to Germany I haven't had it in years. I was just thinking about it and I googled a recipe. This had the best rating and I had all of the ingredients (even the Mexican vanilla!) so I made it. I didn't have extract, just the bean so I substituted the bean for the extract and this stuff is great. I made an account just so I could rate this recipe. The person who said it was gross and Mami J didn't know what she was talking about Must have missed a step or confused sweetened condensed milk with evaporated milk or something. Letting the ingredients steep an hour or so would probably heighten the flavor but it's really good. Thanks for the recipe!

@Chef is right, at least a couple of hours and the flavor increases immeasurably.

Just made this recipe for the first time. It was a little bit messy for me,(mostly because my strainer sucked) but the end result was DELICIOUS. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for this ����

My boyfriend told me how much he loved getting this at ice cream shops in Texas...so when I saw that in the description I had to make it. He said it's exactly how he remembers it. Thank you so much for this!!! Love it!!!

Delicious but I made a few tweaks to get it to my taste. I increased the sweetened condensed milk to a cup (used a Mexican brand, of course), and I used two cinnamon sticks instead of one. I found that this is good to drink after it is made but it is out of this world good once it has had time to sit in the fridge overnight.
