This cool, rice-infused drink is a Mexican staple, served at breakfast and as a thirst quencher on hot afternoons. It is sometimes made with milk rather than water.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 2 qt. water and next 2 ingredients to a boil in a 3 1/2-qt. saucepan over medium heat; cook 25 minutes or until rice is tender. Let cool to room temperature. Remove cinnamon sticks.

Step 2

Puree rice mixture, in batches, in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture into a pitcher; stir in sugar and enough water to equal 2 qt. Chill; serve over ice.

Step 3

*Regular cinnamon sticks may be substituted.
