Horchata (Cinnamon Rice Milk) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 5)
Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
This recipe turned out great, except you can't follow the instructions completely. First, instead of a cinnamon stick I substituted ground cinnamon. Second, I added 1 quart(4 cups) milk)in addition to the other ingredients. Then I heated up the mixture, not waiting the 3 hours, just until it was hot, not boiling. Pureeed the mixture till smooth and strained it. Then I chilled the mixture. Excellent.

Taste was good. The results were in a thick sauce form, like thick paste gravy. Thinning took away any flavor. I am use to Hispanic made from Chicago and it was always so goood. Will return to purchased mix from the store.

This did not turn out well at all. It looked like rice pudding after cooking, and after blending it turned into a rice shake.

The proportions are definitely off. After blending 'til smooth this was a thick rice milkshake, not a refreshing rice drink. Look elsewhere for a good horchata recipie.

The measurements for the water and sugar in this recipe must be WAY off. I followed everything precisely and what I ended up with was a very thick, milkshike-type drink. Nothing at all like real Horchata I grew up in my Mexican household. I had to add about 3 more quarts of water (and consequently another few cups of sugar)to make the drink thin enough and sweet enough to drink. In the end, it still tasted like pureed rice pudding and not like Horchata. I was skeptical when reading this recipe at first because of the directions to cook the rice. I knew that would make it very starchy, but proceeded anyway. I was very disappointed. I guess the hunt still continues for a good Horchata recipe. :-(

Being Mexican myself, I'm biased when it comes to Mexican recipes. However, I do love horchata. It takes alot of time to prepare, but it is worth it. My nieces and newphews love it, but then again, they are also Mexican, :-). My fiancé, on the other hand, is white, and he can't get enought of this drink. I decided to learn how to make it for him, and that is what brought me here. So even though it isn't especially easy to make, it is worth it just for it's delicious taste.
