1/1 Photo of Real Horchata
Chef Sarita in Austin Texas's Note:
My grandmother showed me how to make this drink. It is very popular among Mexican and Latin restaurants. The difference between Mexican Horchata and Latin horchata is that they add milk and we do not. When adding the sugar, I usually add over a cup, but that is because I like it sweet. You can add just a cup or more. Just add sugar to your taste. Prep time also includes the 2 hours of refrigeration.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Wash white rice and place in a plastic bowl. Add cinnamon sticks and ONLY 1 1/2 cups of the water. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator for about 2 hours.
- 2In a blender, blend the rice/water/cinnamon mix for about 1 minute
- 3On top of a pitcher, strain the rice mixture thru a fine mesh sieve. While the sieve is still on top of the mixture, pour the rest of the the 7 cups of water. Keep in mind that you will not be able to filter out all of the rice thru the sieve, so there will be some remenants of the rice mix at the bottom of the pitcher. This is Ok, just give it a quick swirl before drinking.
- 4Add the 1 cup sugar or more if you would like it sweeter.
- 5Slice the lemon into round circles and add to pitcher.
- 6Swirl drink with spoon before serving or drinking. Serve cold.
