Expert Tips

You can also prepare the fruit punch with oatmeal, instead of rice.

Prepared with rice and a touch of cinnamon, agua de horchata is a classic of Mexican cuisine. This horchata fruit punch was inspired by one of my sisters-in-law who always serves her agua de horchata with sliced strawberries. Like her, I started adding sliced strawberries, but when I had more fruits in my fridge, I added a bit of all I could find: kiwi fruit, blackberries, cherries, nectarines, mangoes... A bit of everything! What I like the most of this agua fresca is that after drinking it, my kids always look for a spoon to eat the fruit left at the bottom of the glass. If you are looking for a way of offering more seasonal fruits to your family, this agua fresca is great for you!

Directions

  • 1 Soak the rice and the cinnamon stick in 4 cups of water in the blender container for 15 minutes. While soaking the rice, prepare the fruit that you will use.
  • 2 Mix the rice with the water and the cinnamon stick in the blender until the rice grains are smooth.
  • 3 Strain the mixture in a fine mesh strainer into a 4-liter jar.
  • 4 Add the remaining 6 cups of water and 3 cups of milk. Stir with a spoon until everything is blended.
  • 5 Sweeten with granulated sugar, if needed. Add the sliced fruit before serving. Enjoy it!
