* Wash the Irish Moss with water to remove all foreign matter such as sand and dirt. Wash it well and thoroughly for a few minutes in a colander. It is very important.
* Soak the Irish Moss in water overnight. 2 parts of water to 1 part of moss. You can put it in the fridge a few hours later. You can also do this early in the morning and it can be ready to use later in the evening. Some people let it soak for just for a few hours. It's your choice. Ideally, the longer it soaks the more the moss will soak up the water and become thicker and more plump to make the drink.
* Now, you can put it in the blender and blend it on high with the cover on for a couple of minutes. Do it in intervals of 30 seconds to avoid burning the motor of your blender and give it a light mix manually with the big spoon in between the intervals.
*Empty the mixture into a big glass jar, or jug, put the cover on (or saran wrap) and put it in the fridge to refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours. Once the time elapses, check up on it as it will have thickened you will want to give it a good stir, or throw it back into the blender for a few spins.
