Spiced Almond Milk (Horchata)

Photo: Oxmoor House

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.
