We LOVE horchata, but are always disappointed in the amount of wait time required to make it. One day I decided to try to cook the rice slightly before making the drink because I wanted it NOW! We really like it and think it tastes just a good as the original recipe we tried which calls for the rice to be soaked over night.
- Combine rice and water together in saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue to let boil for about 5 minutes.
- Drain water from rice.
- Combine milk and rice and blend together. Strain the milk and rice mixture through cheesecloth.
- Add sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Feel free to use less or more sugar and cinnamon depending on personal preference.
- Add plenty of ice.
Simple recipe. Great solution when soaking isn't desired. Not sure why the first review was a 3-star.
Great idea to par the cook the rice if you want this great treat right now! I used 4 cups of milk since it seems to have been accidentally not listed, but it tastes great, got a good glass of it for now and will let the rest sit for a great breakfast drink! Thanks!
