    • 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.
