SOAK RICE OVER NIGHT
1Put rice in a large stainless steel pot and cover with hot water. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover pot and leave sit overnight.
2Next Day: Drain rice. Put rice and some milk and water in blender to grind the rice up. Do this in "batches" until all the rice is ground up.
3Use a few layers of cheese cloth and strain the rice mixture until all is done (DO NOT SQUEEZE!).
4Put strained rice mixture, milk and all remaining ingredients into the large pot. Use a wire whisk to blend all together well. Refrigerate.
5*** Serve cold as is, or put some in a blender with ice.
*** This is a traditional drink that takes the "heat" out of your mouth after eating spicy food. It is sold in many Mexican eateries, as they too make this drink as a traditional beverage.
