Horchata is a non alcoholic drink that is made with rice... I first had this in a mexican restaurant years ago and absolutely loved it!! I found this recipe for it not too long ago and on a hot summer day it's really very refreshing!

  3. Rinse out the blender to remove any residue, then pour the liquid back into the blender with the vanilla and sugar. Blend on high till sugar is fully disolved.
