Agua de Horcahata (Rice Water)

By Chef Rodrigo Bueno from the June 2016 Edition

This traditional Mexican beverage is made with rice. You may find it in other parts of Latin America made with different seeds or nuts added in. For a dairy-free beverage, you can use water instead of evaporated milk. And we suggest using one of our favorite blenders to get a silky smooth consistency.

Ingredients

2 cups dry white rice

3 cups water

1 cinnamon stick

1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup sugar

1 can evaporated milk

Directions

Soak the rice in the 3 cups of water with the cinnamon stick, overnight or for at least 6 hours.

After resting, place the mixture into a blender and add the evaporated milk, sugar and vanilla extract, and blend until smooth.

Strain the liquid through a fine sieve a few times to remove any grittiness.

Serve over ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon on top.
