In a bowl, soak the rice with water and cinnamon stick. Allow the rice to soak for at least an hour, ideally overnight. In a blender add the soaked rice and cinnamon mixture, Torani vanilla syrup, and oat milk. Blend until as smooth as possible. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Add ice to a tall glass, fill halfway with cold brewed coffee and fill to the top with the horchata creamer. If you like your coffee sweeter, simply add more Torani vanilla syrup as desired.
