||sliced raw almonds
||orange flower water
Put the almonds in a bowl and cover with 850ml of water. Let them sit for 30 minutes.
Strain almonds, discarding the water. Coarsely grind in a blender, food processor or sandwich bag with a mallet.
Return the almonds to the bowl and cover with another 850ml of water. Let soak for a minimum of 4 hours (overnight is fine), stirring every hour or so.
Strain the liquid through something that can hold the solids back while you squeeze every drop of liquid out. A nut bag seems ideal but cheesecloth, paper towel and coffee filters all work fine.
Strain into a glass jar using a fine-mesh strainer. Add sugar to the jar and shake until it’s dissolved.
Add rum and orange flower water and shake to incorporate.
Store in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before using. It will keep for up to 3 months.
