    1 cup long grain white rice

    2 cups skinless almonds

    1-inch piece cinnamon bark

    8 cups water

    1/2 cup sugar

    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Ice cubes

    Wash and drain the rice. Using a spice grinder (an electric coffee grinder works well too), grind the rice until fine; combine with the almonds and cinnamon bark. Add 3 1/2 cups water and let sit overnight, covered. Blend rice mixture until smooth using a blender. Add 2 1/2 cups of water and continue blending. Add sugar and vanilla extract. Strain horchata into a bowl first using a metal strainer and then a double layer of cheesecloth; finish with up to an additional 2 cups of water until it achieves a milky consistency. Enjoy over ice.

  • the real stuff like that you can't buy here in america or not? you can get a package of the stuff to blend up and add water or milk to from walmart. but the real stuff is made from re used water that they cook the rice in and save the water and cook more rice in and cook some more in it. then they add the sugar and cinnamon and stuff. it tastes completely different than the stuff you can order at a restruant.
