Similar to horchata, but easier. Light and sweet drink from Southern Living. Cook time is chill time.

This was nice, different to anything I've had before, the cinnamon flavour is nice & strong & the drink is lovely on a hot day. I also added it to coffee for a cinnamon infused iced coffee which was lovely. Thanks for posting!
