The unusual drink made from calissons and orange blossom

Recette Boisson Calisson

In the family of cult confectionery, I ask… Calissons d'Aix , this small southern confectionery with candied melon paste and almonds that no one can resist, especially if you come to pick it up in its legendary house Le Roy René .

On the occasion of the release of the book Calisson Nougat ” published by La Martinière , we let ourselves be tempted by a totally unusual almond milk recipe , a phyltre inspired by the Maghreb and the Near East, simmered with a blender made with Roy René calisson spread and a hint of orange blossom.


  1. Pour the almond milk into a blender, then add calisson cream and flower water.
  2. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes, until the mixture is smooth and frothy.
  3. Pour into glasses, making sure to distribute the foam.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped black nougat.
  5. Serve immediately in a Baccarat longdrink glass.
