Adapted from Allrecipes (we love their recipe, but cut the sugar in half, because we found it too sweet) 

1 cup uncooked white rice 
5 cups water
1/2 cup milk 
1/2 tablespoon vanilla 
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup white sugar 

Pour the rice and water into a blender and blend for one minute. Let rice and water sit in the blender for 3 hours.Spiked (or not!) Horchata recipe… so delicious!

Mix well and chill before serving.

If you're making the spiked version I would personally enjoy it without sugar, since the Rumchata is already so sweet. I'm a fan of semi-sweet cocktails, and you can always add more sugar later if you choose to!Spiked (or not!) Horchata recipe… so delicious! (click through for the full recipe)   Spiked (or not!)
