Latin Americans have been grinding rice and nuts into milk for centuries. You just soak rice in water with spices, then buzz it all in a blender and strain. For fruit horchata, add chopped fruits along with the rice and everything else. To make a horchata cocktail, add a splash of dark rum.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 2 cups water and next 6 ingredients (through cloves) in large bowl. Cover and chill 8 to 24 hours or until rice is soft. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, reserving solids. Discard liquid.

Step 2

Place solids, remaining 2 cups water, and almond milk in a blender; process 2 minutes. Strain through fine sieve into a pitcher; discard solids. Add sugar, extracts, and salt to milk mixture, stirring until sugar dissolves. Serve over ice. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.
