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 cwhite long grain rice........rinsed twice
4 cwater, hot
2 stickcinnamon...broken up
1/2 cwhite sugar...to taste
2 tsppure vanilla extract
2 can(s)evaporated milk ...12oz size
How to Make ICE COLD "HORCHATA" a RICE BEVERAGE
- Put rice in a large bowl,
and pour water that has come to a boil
over 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.
