SO was picking up some booze at a local liquor store for guests we were having for dinner last month. She ran into a tasting in progress to introduce a new beverage. It's something called Rumchata. RumChata ® - Horchata Con Ron
This is a very tasty drink along the lines of Bailey's Irish Cream. That is, booze in a sweet creamy concoction. Check out the link.
Well, it was $20 bucks that day and is now $25. SO thought that was too steep so never bought a second bottle.
I did some reading up on the drink and learned it is based on a non-alcoholic rice and sugar based drink flavored with cinnamon, almonds, etc. There are many variations.
Of course there are recipes online so I came up with a recipe to make my own horchata that we could add rum to to replicate the bottled stuff.
I just did the basic preparation which involves grinding rice, cinnamon and almonds to a fine powder then mixing it with vanilla, sugar and water. Then it sits overnight to steep. That's where we are right now. I'll report back tomorrow after SO and I have tasted it.
