Now, my latina homegirl made some Horchata for me a few times. And I have to say it's a pretty sweet, but very tasty treat! This is not diabetes friendly by any means! LOLOL. It definitely one of the top and most common latin drinks you'll find. It honestly tastes like ice cream but better!Take a peak at my hubpages to get a full of account of what I did to make this special! LOLOL. Here are the ingredients:
1 cup long grain rice, rinsed
2 quarts water
1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
1/2 cup white sugar
Now, here's how to make it! Recipe taken from AllRecipes.com
In a large saucepan, combine rice, water and cinnamon stick. Set aside for 3 hours.
After 3 hours, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Allow to cool.
Puree rice mixture in a blender until smooth. Strain through cheesecloth or a fine sieve. Flavor with vanilla and sugar to taste. Chill, and serve over ice.
Now, all you do is add whatever rum you like to use and shake it up! It's very imperative to shake it up every time you drink because a lot of the ingredients seep to the bottom! For the best flavor, shake it up each time you use it so you get the full flavor. Now, here's a batch of horchata and rum below:
Don't mind the ciroc bottle. As you can see, that's a LOT of horchata, so you need all of that rum to get in there!
Seeing as there are no videos on how to exactly make Rumchata, I found a basic video on Horchata. Just add the rum when you feel like it! Enjoy!
Also, if you are lazy like me, you can just purchase Horchata right here and add your rum and guess what! It's LACTOSE AND GLUTEN FREE!!!!
