Sorry, this was a dump out for us. Too much water, too much cinnamon, too little sugar, too little flavor. And I live in Mexico, so I know Horchata!

This was pretty much flavorless. Not a good recip.e

This is addictive! I used a whole cinnamon stick and just let it soak, removing it before blending. This was delicious and refreshing on its own and very nice after adding some coffee ice cubes....

Very addictive, wonderful flavor. I love every sip of this drink.

It was great although I did it a tad different than the recipe calls for
