With cinnamon, vanilla, and floral notes from Carolina® Jasmine Rice, you’ll be addicted to more than just the caffeine in this irresistible beverage. This picture perfect drink serves as both an energizing breakfast treat and a revitalizing afternoon pick-me-up.
Cook rice according to package directions with almonds and 1 tsp cinnamon. Let cool completely; refrigerate overnight.
In blender, purée rice, evaporated milk, ice and vanilla until smooth. Strain and divide among 6 tall glasses.
Meanwhile, in large mixing bowl, combine instant coffee and sugar. Pour boiling water over top; using electric mixer, beat for 3 to 5 minutes or until thick, foamy and stiff peaks start to form.
Top each serving with coffee foam; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon.
Turn this iced coffee into a cocktail by adding a splash of rum, or Kahlua or Amaretto liqueur.
Sweeten horchata with sweetened condensed milk to taste.
If you’re asking yourself what “stiff peaks start to form” means, you’re not alone! You want a thick, foamy — almost mousse-like — consistency to dollop on your horchata, you’re going to have to whip that dalgona-style coffee. Once your liquid mixture gets aerated enough, it gets more volume, turns opaque, and starts to show ridges in the bowl. This is when you can test the peaks, or how the mixture looks on a whisk/beater when you lift it out of the bowl and turn it upside down.
Don’t let a small detail like not having a mixer keep you from this caffeine creation! There are a couple tricks to make those peaks a piece of cake — even without a mixer.
Want the same delicious coffee/rice duo without the whip work? Don’t break a sweat with this creamy Cafe Horchata.
