Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
REMOVE cinnamon sticks. Spoon rice into blender (reserve soaking water); cover. Blend on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture is as smooth as possible. Add the reserved soaking water; blend for an additional 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth or extra fine sieve into a pitcher, pressing the rice solids until only a dry paste remains; discard paste. Repeat process if necessary to eliminate all rice solids from liquid.
POUR into tall glasses with ice cubes. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.

This is the best recipe I've found on the internet. It tastes very close to what I get at my local taqueria. Surprisingly good!
