1 1/4 cups
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
rum, or to taste
Oh jeeze...I dont even know where to start...I made this one night with carne asada for my bf and I...it was a busy day in the kitchen but well worth it. This was my first time making Horchata. We drank this aaaaalllll night and some the next day, haha. I was a little short on time so only let the rice soak (2nd soaking) for 1 hr instead of 2 and let it refridgerate for maybe 30 minutes and just poured it over ice. This one def. stays in my recipe archives!
Too milky, not enough cinammon, not enough water. The horchata is always different depending on the Mexican region you're at. If you ever get the chance to go to Calistoga, California some folks from Nayarit have a Mexican restaurant 'Puerto Vallarta' with the BEST tasting horchata I've ever had.
i found this recipe and decided to make it a virgin drink for my 2 1/2 yr old who loves horchata. it's way better than the store bought version. it's very easy to make, just the right amount of everything. this will definitly be a keeper, and next time i have adult time i will add the rum! thanks for sharing.
Strange way to make a drink, but it was worth it! This is spicy and smooth! The unused rice made a good cereal when heated with some water!
This was so much better than I was expecting it to be! I loved it! It was great without the rum, but adding the rum was a nice bonus.
My first time making horchata and it was delicious. I don't know if I've ever had anything woth sweetened condensed milk that I didn't like. By looking at the recipe I thought it might be too sweet so at first I only put in 2/3 of the can, but after sampling, I added the rest. I still don't think it's too sweet, it's just right. Would surely make it again.
Absolutly Terriffic drink. We just loved it. But I let the rice/cinnom paste soak in the rice water for about 24 hours. Then I used about a quarter of the liquid, to finish the recipe. I put the liquid in the blender along with all of the other ingredients and then let it sit for 2 hours in the fridge. Was very very good keeps well for a day or two when covered.
I prefer a little another way to make horchata, I want to say about this combination: rum and sweetened condensed milk in horchata - this is wonderful. This recipe makes very good cocktail.
