Jazzmen Rice Peach Horchata (Mexican Rice Milk)
Traditionally, horchata is flavored strongly with cinnamon. But we wanted to create a lighter version with the a flavor of summer. this version is super refreshing on a hot day and can easily be spiked for a adult twist.
1 cup uncooked white Jazzmen Rice
5 cups water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1 cup diced peaches
Pour the rice into a blender and blend until the rice just begins to break up, about 1 minute. Add the water and cinnamon and soak at room temperature for 2-4 hours. The longer you soak the more rice flavor will be extracted.
Strain the rice water into a blender and discard the rice. Add the milk, vanilla, sugar, and peaches and blend until smooth.
Chill and stir before serving over ice.
