Horchata- can I use this rice again to make rice water?

I made horchata yesterday(well really this morning after everything sat) I have the ground cinnamon and rice left. Can I use it again to make a second batch? I was thinking I could add four cups of water to it again and blend again and let it sit overnight?

It turned out really well and most of the ingredients are already in my kitchen.

      Haha Lulu I would think you would need to add at least some fresh rice to it for the second batch. How exactly did the second batch come out? I'm curious.

        The water tasted like...water. So I just threw it away. I didn't make a second batch. The water had no flavor whatsoever.
