Walnuts are common throughout Greece. Greeks love to snack on them and cook with them, but another great way to enjoy them is through this traditional drink.

Greek Style Sweet Walnut Drink Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups shelled walnuts
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 cups filtered water

Instructions on How to Make Greek Style Sweet Walnut Drink:

Place the walnuts into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until they are chopped but not pulverized.

Add 1/3 cup of the sugar and 1/3 cup of the water into the food processor and pulse until a paste is formed.

Pour the rest of the sugar and water into a saucepan and set the heat to medium. Stir and heat the mixture until the sugar dissolves.

Once the sugar dissolves, cover the pan. Reduce the heat to low and simmer it for about 10 minutes.

Stir in the walnut paste. Set the heat to medium-low and simmer the mixture for about ten minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for about 30 minutes to let it cool.

Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or a cheesecloth. To serve, stir a few tablespoons of the mixture into water, sparkling water, or even milk.
