OPI Eats: Cinco de Mayo Horchata
Cinco de Mayo is one of our favorite unofficial holidays for many food and drink-related reasons. Tortilla chips and guacamole, street tacos, margaritas...what's not to like? One drink we're excited to make is Mexican Horchata - a cold drink made with almonds, rice, and cinnamon. Below, we share the recipe to make this for yourself and home and it's super easy! Read the steps below and ENJOY!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
You'll need: 1 cup long grain white rice 1-3 cinnamon sticks 3/4 cups blanched almonds Ground cinnamon
Add the rice and almonds to a blender.
Cover them with water and let them sit overnight. Once they've soaked, blend into a paste.
Once you've blended them into a paste, transfer the paste into a cheesecloth and strain back into the blender.
Pour the horchata into a glass and top with cinnamon.
