No Wait Homemade Horchata

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MamaMeg

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.
