You will need:

1 cup white rice, I used long grain

3/4 cup blanched almonds

1 cinnamon stick broken into pieces

1/4 cup condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup dark rum like Myers's Rum 

ground cinnamon for garnish

  1. Soak the rice, almonds and cinnamon overnight in 4 cups of hot water.
  2. The next day pour the soaked ingredients and liquid into a blender and whiz it up until it's very very smooth. This could be 3-5 minutes.
  3. Strain the mixture into a pitcher through a strainer or cheesecloth.
  4. Add condensed milk and vanilla and stir well.
  5. ADD THAT RUM!
  6. Mix well, serve over ice with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
