  • 1/2 cup unroasted unsalted pistachios
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 water
  • 1 teaspoon orange flower water


  • Use a food processor to grind pistachio nuts down to a fine consistency.
  • Mix the sugar and water together in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add the chopped pistachios and simmer for 10 minutes over low heat.
  • The sugar and nuts will boil up the sides of the pan, just give it a good scrap back down into the pot when you see it condensing above the boil line.
  • Scrape any nuts and sugar back down into the boiling mixture that collect above the boiling point.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and let sit covered for 4 hours.
  • Strain the pistachio’s out of the syrup using a fine mesh sieve and discard nut pulp or reserve for another use.
  • Add orange blossom water and stir to combine.
  • This is delicious mixed into cocktails, topped with seltzer water or drizzled over vanilla ice cream.
