Lola's Horchata
September 08, 2007

My family loves horchata and we drink it all the time in restaurants so I was excited about making it at home. However, I'm not really thrilled with how it turned out. I only used a half a cup of sugar and it was still really sweet, like horchata is sapposed to be. The problem with this recipe is the cinnamon. The drink turns out brown, not white like in the picture. And I had to skim a lot of cinnamon off the top because it wouldn't blend in. The taste was pretty much right on, just a little more watery then we're used to. I'm going to experiment with boiling cinnamon sticks in the water and then blending it with the rice.
