ICE COLD "HORCHATA" a RICE BEVERAGE
Nancy J. Patrykus
While at a Mexican restaurant yesterday we had a huge taco salad and this this delicious
drink called a HORCHATA. This was a first for me...tasting this wonderful ice cold beverage.
Served with a dipper from a huge glass bowl
loaded with ice cubes.
I fell in love! So naturally I asked the waitress for the recipe.She obliged by writing it out on a napkin.
Here is her simple version that I
re-created today for you to enjoy.
- 2 c
- white long grain rice........rinsed twice
- 4 c
- water, hot
- 2 stick
- cinnamon...broken up
- 1/2 c
- white sugar...to taste
- 2 tsp
- pure vanilla extract
- 2 can(s)
- evaporated milk ...12oz size
and pour water that has come to a boil
over the rice.
Break up the cinnamon sticks, add to the rice.
Cover and let sit 8 hours or,overnight.
Next morning put in blender in batches (a couple) and blend all til smooth.
Strain all into a serving bowl,then add the milk, sugar and vanilla.Stir.
