Soumada drink is a white colour drink that is made from almonds. It is also called amygdalopoma. In antiquity it was known was thiason (from the word athasia which means almonds).

In the byzantine era it was also called thasorrofon (rofima means drink).

In order to make soumada first you must peal the almonds and ground them. Then they are placed in water which will suck their juice. After they are strained, the water is boiled with the addition of sugar until it becomes syrup. Then the syrup is diluted like cordial, and it served chilled as a refreshment.

In Greece soumada is considered a wedding drink due to its colour, and is offered at weddings.
