Horchata ( Mexican rice milk)

1 1/2 Cups uncooked white long grain rice
7 cups water
3/4 Cup milk
2 1/4 tsp vanilla
1 Cup Sugar
2 Cinnamon Sticks

1.Pour the rice and water into a blender and blend until the rice just begins to break up. About 1 min.
2.Add the Cinnamon sticks and let the rice water sit at room temperature for at least 3 hours minimum.

3.Strain the rice water into a picture and discard rice and cinnamon sticks
4.Stir in the milk,vanilla and sugar

5.Chill in the fridge at least 6 hours. Overnight is best. This tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge I think that it tasted best on day 3..
* This recipe will make a half gallon. I doubled it for a party thats why mine is a full gallon.
