Winter Horchata

winter horchata


  • 65gr uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 80gr almonds
  • Cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
  • 1 litre of water
  • 1/4 cup rum or add to taste! 


  1. First grind up your rice and cinnamon – we used a coffee grinder.
  2. In a large bowl combine your almonds, ground cinnamon and rice with 1/2 litre warm water. Add the cinnamon stick to the bowl and cover and then place in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours.
  3. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and remove the cinnamon stick. Then in a food processor blend the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes on high speed, or until you’ve got the mixture as smooth as possible.
    Add the honey and the other 1/2 litre of water and blend again for 2 more minutes, or again until the mixture is as smooth as possible.
  4. Pour the horchata into a pan and heat at medium heat for 5 minutes, until warm. Add a few glugs of lovely Rum and serve with a touch of cinnamon powder sprinkled on top. Yum!
