Agua de Horchata - Refreshing Rice Water

Agua de horchata has been around for centuries. It is one of the most well known drinks in Latin America and Spain. We want to bring the delicious, refreshing beverage to the rest of the world! We know everyone will enjoy it.

What is Agua de Horchata?

Agua de horchata is essentially sweetened rice water. It is usually seasoned with cinnamon and vanilla, giving it a rich, warm taste. The delicious drink has been around since 2400 BC and was created in North Africa. It made its way around the globe thanks to its delicious taste and power.

Agua horchata was originally enjoyed on hot days. It has a powerful cooling quality and was once used as a medicine to help lower fevers. The water was also given to babies and help them stop fussing. It sure has made an impact on the world as a yummy, useful drink!

How to Make Agua de Horchata

Making agua de horchata is quite easy. It does take a little time and planning but the overall effort and skill is minimal. All you need is a pitcher, spoon and a blender! Here is how we make our tasty drink.

  1. Soak the uncooked rice and cinnamon stick in the water. The longer you let the rice soak, the creamier your drink will be. Let it soak for at least two hours to help tenderize the rice. If you are in a rush, boil the water before soaking the rice. Hot water will soften the rice faster.
  2. Blend the soaked rice, water and cinnamon sticks together. Yes! You leave the cinnamon sticks in! They will break up into very small, ground bits when blended.
  3. Strain the mix and then discard any pulp from the rice and cinnamon stick.
  4. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla bean paste.
  5. Chill the agua horchata and serve over ice.

Simple, right? We know! It really is an easy recipe, it just requires a little bit of waiting. All good things come to those who wait! And this delicious, non alcoholic drink will be your reward for your patience.

Tips for Making Agua de Horchata

Homemade agua horchata is very easy to make. Of course, there are always tips and tricks to help you make delicious drinks even better. We have made this recipe quite a few times and have some tricks to share.

  • Jasmine rice has a subtle nutty flavor that tastes great in agua de horchata
  • Use brown rice for more fiber in your drink. However, you will have to soak brown rice longer since it is quite tough. Double the soaking time if you want to use brown rice in place of white rice.
  • Ground cinnamon can be used in place of cinnamon sticks. Use a tablespoon of ground cinnamon and add it to the rice as it is soaking.
  • Add a pinch of nutmeg to make the agua more interesting. A little bit goes a long way so only use a pinch!
  • Use a teaspoon of almond extract in place of vanilla bean paste for a delicious almond flavor.
  • Soak the overnight rice or longer. The longer you soak the rice, the creamier your agua de horchata will be
  • Use ¼ cup honey or maple syrup in place of the sweetened condensed milk. You will get a sweet, rich agua de horchata

INGREDIENTS

This recipe calls for fresh everyday ingredients that come together to make the perfect summer sip.

written list with pictures of ingredients for strawberry fresca including strawberries water mint lime and sugar.

Fresh strawberries: There’s nothing better than fresh strawberries straight from the punnet. If you can only get your hands on frozen strawberries, always thaw them before adding.

Slice your strawberries before macerating them in the sugar water mixture for a sweet and smooth result.

Sugar, or monkfruit sweetener: maceration (soaking fruit in sugar water) is essential to soften the strawberries. It will turn even less than perfect berries into something worthy of your fresca.

Cane sugar is the most common choice, but monkfruit sweetener works well for a low sugar option.

Lime juice: since fresca literally means fresh, I will advocate that you use fresh lime in this recipe. Of course, a fresca in the hand is better than no fresca at all. If you can’t get your hands on fresh lime, bottled will also work!

Mint to garnish: a simple garnish for a deliciously simple drink. A spring of mint, freshly halved strawberries and a lime wheel make this fresca look as good as it tastes.

VARIATIONS

If you prefer your agua fresca strawberry mocktail on the sweeter side, this recipe works well without the lime. Alternatively, adjust the quantity to your taste.

For a low sugar option, simply swap the sugar out with monkfruit sweetener to enjoy a refined sugar-free fresca.
