Horchata

Horchata ranks highly in my kitchen and around the world. This refreshing sweet creamy drink has won many hearts. As for me, I grew up enjoying this beverage because It was everywhere! At the local market, restaurants, taquerias and most importantly at a place I call home. There are so many variations and flavors. In fact, tents where actually set up to sell agua frescas. Horchata continues to gain popularity and its refreshing qualities captivate new generations.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Pour the rice in a strainer and rinse to remove surface excess starch. Drain all of the water and pour into a heat proof, deep container. Break the cinnamon stick and add it in. Pour in 2 cups of boiling water, it should cover the rice completely. Cover with plastic wrap and allow it to soak for 4 hrs or all night. 
  • Blend the rice, water and cinnamon stick until completely broken down. Strain into a pitcher. 
  • Also pour in the evaporated, condensed and whole milk. Plus, the vanilla extract and 4 cups of water. Mix to combine and dissolve the condensed milk. Add sugar to taste and dissolve completely as well. Serve over ice and dust a touch of ground cinnamon over the drink. ENJOY! 
  • Try my sugar free sweetened condensed milk recipe

      1. Rosanna I am so happy I found you. I’ve made several of your salsas. They are beyond amazing. I live in California and am fortunate to have wonderful Mexican food all around us. But it’s so satisfying to be able to make my own. Can’t wait for the next video! Blessings to you and Nelson.
