  • 650g almonds
  • 20 bitter almonds
  • 1kg sugar
  • 7 cups water


    1. In a pot of boiling water add the almonds for 2-3 minutes and peel them once cooled. 

    2. Transfer the almonds to a blender, add 1 cup water and mix until they are completely blended. Drain the mixture into a bowl using a cheesecloth, and reserve the milky liquid.

    3. Boil the sugar together with the rest of the water, until it turns into a thick syrup. Leave it to cool and add the almond mixture. Mix, transfer to bottles and store in the fridge. To serve, pour a little of the soumada toa glass and top up with cold water.
