⁣ 



Horchata Cold Brew⁣

⅓ cup of uncooked brown rice⁣
1 cup slivered almonds⁣
2 cinnamon sticks⁣
3 cups hot water⁣
2 TSP of vanilla extract ⁣
1 TBS of ground cinnamon (or less depending on how much cinnamon flavor you like, we love cinnamon!)⁣
2 cups of cold milk ⁣
½ cup sweetened condensed milk (or more to taste) ⁣
Cold brew coffee ⁣

Grind rice in a blender until fine. ⁣

Add the almonds, cinnamon sticks and hot water to ground rice and stir with a spoon. Let mixture cool and then cover and let it sit overnight (minimum of 3 hours). Tip: keep everything in blender jar to make it easier. ⁣

After soaking, add vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, cold milk and condensed milk to the rice/cinnamon/almond mixture. Blend until smooth. You can add more sweetened condensed milk if you want your horchata a bit sweeter. ⁣

Strain the mixture into a pitcher or jar. We like to start with a regular strainer and then strain again through cheesecloth to perfect the texture for your cold brew. ⁣

Fill a glass with ice and then  with half cold brew (concentrate) and half horchata. You can always play with the ratio by adding more coffee if you like a stronger coffee flavor or more horchata if you prefer a sweeter drink. ⁣
