I haven't made this, but it does sound interesting.


  1. Place the rice in a bowl with enough hot water to cover.
  2. Let the rice sit overnight.
  3. Next day, remove the water.
  4. Place 1/2 cup of rice, and 2 cups milk in a blender.
  5. Blend until rice is all ground up.
  6. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar,.
  7. 1/2 teaspoons vanilla,.
  8. 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon.
  9. Do the same with the other half of the ingredients.
  10. Strain through cheesecloth (or whatever).
  11. Serve over ice.

This horchata recipe is delicious and tastes like a good restaraurant version! For best results skip the cheesecloth and pour the blended mix straight through a brand new nylon, works much better. I found that when you strain it several times it leaves less of that powdery after taste. I will be making this every mexican meal i make in the future! Thanks!

So I am giving this four stars for the tastiness of the end result. It loses a star because the recipe could be a little more specific. When I soaked the rice, it must have resulted in a lot more than in the recipe. I used what I had (and I think it was way too much). When straining the mixture through cheesecloth, there was a lot of sediment in there. Also, didn't seem to make enough for 6 people at all. Because it tastes so good, I think next time I will plan on using more milk.
