Homemade Horchata Directions

The night before serving: Add white long-grain rice to a spice grinder and pulverize. Transfer pulverized rice to a large bowl, and then add the almonds and cinnamon stick. Stir ingredients in 2 1/2 cups hot water, cover, and let stand for at least 6 hours. (Enjoy a cold beer why you wait.)

Next: Waking up the next morning after finishing off the 12-pk you bought the night before, remove the cinnamon sticks and discard. Puree the mixture in a blender until it’s no longer gritty (about 4 minutes). Add 2 cups water and blend for a few seconds more.

Next: Set a large sieve lined with 3 layers of dampened cheesecloth over a medium bowl. Pour the almond rice mixture in, a little at a time, stirring gently to help the liquid pass through, and then gather up the corners of the cheesecloth and squeeze out all the liquid.

Stir sugar and salt into the strained liquid. Cover and refrigerate. Stir before pouring into making cocktails.
