While allowing the blended rice time to set overnight produces a better flavor. It isn’t a must if you’re pressed for time. The blended rice really only needs 2 to 3 hours to give a nice flavor. Just let it sit for as long as your can before you need to move to the next step.

  • 2.5 Cups jasmine rice

  • 1 Cup half and half
  • 1 Cup whole milk
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cup white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/16 tsp ground clove
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Add rice, water, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and ground cinnamon to blender.
  • Blend all ingredients until rice is broken into small pieces. The rice should look fine, like micro beads.
  • Allow to sit covered in the blender at room temperature overnight. In the morning blend again, and strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher.
  • Add the half and half, and milk to the rice water, and stir.
  • Taste for sweetness and spices and adjust as desired.
  • Enjoy over ice, and think about sweet sweet Texas.
