  • 1 cup rice
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tblsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Crush rice a little with a mortar and pestle. Poor water over rice and let soak overnight. The next day, filter the rice water, and add the other ingredients. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Serve cold or over ice.

If I were to make this again, I would probably soak the rice a little in just enough hot water to cover first, then crush the rice, then add the rest of the warm water and let soak overnight. The original recipe contains 2/3 cups sugar, but this would have been far too much for me.
