Introduction

A great milky beverage that contains no milk!

I tried this at an authentic Mexican get-together a few years ago, and I've been drinking it every chance I get ever since.

There are many variations, but this is a basic version that satisfies my cravings. Enjoy!

    My mother in law, from Mexico, taught me a TON of mexican recipes. Horchata is one of my favorites, but instead of combining everything first, put your rice and warm water in a blender and chop the rice first then add other stuff next day b4 straining. You'll get more of the rice taste coming thru! - 12/8/08
