Patience!!! Takes a while to make this but OHH is it worth it. For those having trouble straining it try placing a double layer of cheese cloth over a bowl and secure with a large rubber band. Pour puree over cheese cloth and allow to drain. Repeat process using a sieve to get the smaller particles out. It's an extra step but much easier than trying to force it through a sieve the first time and gives you a much smoother puree to finish with.

This is so good! I've made horchata before but not like this version. I put it in a milk bottle and my neighbor thought it was just that and poured herself a glass. What a surprise!! Now she's into making horchata at her house. Thanks!! Rum does work in it too.

I made this today and just tried it--delicious! I have never tried horchata, so I have no basis for comparison, but I like it a lot. My only issue was trying to strain the rice mixture...it just didn't seem to be flowing through the sieve...maybe a drop at a time, but at times not even that. I finally took a flat glass pitcher lid and used that to press the top of the mixture, and then it came through. Does anyone know if there is a way to make that process easier? It did eventually work though, and it tastes great! I highly recommend adding the rum. Thanks for the great recipe!
