Part 2, of my segment of Cinco de Mayo special, also my personal favorite, Horchata, which also remind me of a Vampire Weekend song, which I put below the recipe. ENJOY!
Horchata (Serves 4-6)
1 Cup White Rice
5 Cups Water
1 Cinnamon Stick
Zest of 1 Small Lime
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Agave, Honey (or 1/3 Cup Sugar)
1. Place the rice, cinnamon stick and water in a large bowl and let the mixture sit covered for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
2. Place the rice and water mixture in a blender with the remaining and blend on high for 2 minutes.
3. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a pitcher.
4. Chill, stir and serve over ice.
*As the horchata chills in the fridge, all the sediments will sink to the bottom, therefore you will need to stir the horchata each time you serve it.
