I tried this recipe the first time and it did not really taste like authentic horchata. It had too much vanilla, not enough cinnamon, and the texture was not right. The second time I made some adjustments and it was amazing. First, as someone said, blend two cups of water with one cup rice and two cinnamon sticks. Then I added three cups of water and let it sit out for four hours, then refrigerated overnight. I put it back in the blender with 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/2 tsp vanilla, then strained out the gritty bits of rice. I added 1/3 c brown sugar and 1 c milk (low-fat or non-fat milk does not overwhelm the flavor) and blended again. I strained it one last time and served over ice.
