Supper Club: Lola's Horchata

This is one of our favorite Mexican beverages, so we figured it would be fun to try to make them ourselves for the Supper Club. It takes a while, but most of the time is just letting the rice soak. It's a really easy recipe. We forgot to get a picture of these before they were all gone - oops! But here's a photo of 95% of the night's tastiness:
