- 1 cup uncooked white rice
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 14 pumps Amoretti Premium Cinnamon Syrup
- 2/3 cups white sugar
Blend the white rice in a food processor. Some people recommend using a coffee grinder for a finer grind (try this at your own risk). Using a traditional food processor, you should be able to get the grind fine enough after about a minute of blending. Let the uncooked rice soak in the water for about three hours at room temperature.
Strain the rice water into a pitcher, and toss the rice. Mix in the rest of your ingredients, and then chill. Pour your horchata over ice, and serve. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and/or grated nutmeg to make your horchata extra special!
This simple “bare bones” recipe calls for some creative but easy-to-obtain beverage ingredients. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have here at our headquarters in Southern California! Also, you can try adding tequila to spike your horchata. However, you probably wouldn’t want to have more than a couple of glasses of spiked horchata! Another alternative for this recipe is drinking horchata warm. Keep this idea in mind as fall approaches.
