Almond Milk

Mandel Milch


About 2 dozen or so sweet almonds are finely chopped and put into a basin or jug with 1 pint of water. Stir till the mixture looks like milk. Strain through a wet napkin. Pound the almonds in a mortar, and stir again in the same water. Strain, add a good amount of sugar, and a little orange juice. It is usually served very cold, but sometimes just warm.
