“There is a small restaurant that I like to go to whenever I have the chance. Unfortunately, since it's about three hours away, I don't get to do so very often. One of the biggest draws for me is their Agua de Arroz, which means "Rice Water" in spanish. But to call it just simple rice water does it such a disservice. It is soooo much more than that! It is a sweet, creamy dessert drink that truly "makes" the meal. I tried it on a whim the first time. I had just walked away from the counter when I took a sip. I whirled around to my sister, who was right behind me, and said, "You have GOT to try this stuff!!!". So today I went searching for a recipe for Agua de Arroz...and found this. It haven't tried this specific recipe, but I will be soon! It sounds very much like the one that I had. NOTE: After trying this...it wasn't anything like the one I was looking for. It turned out to be this gooey, gelatinous...bleah. Since I can't delete the recipe, I thought I'd warn folks. Don't waste your ingredients.”
