How to make Orgeat from the Cocktail Dudes

  • Orgeat is a sweet almond syrup most famously used in the classic Mai Tai. Though most frequently associated with tiki drinks, this fun and versatile syrup can add flair to many cocktails, like our Apple Jacks Smack, or Java Tai, as well as the incredible Trinidad Sour or Fernet Sour. We don't use the range when making this syrup as we've found the "counter-top" method provides for a lighter, brighter syrup. Though best with rum-based drinks, experiment with this syrup or its cousin, Falernum, to spice-up and enliven your favorite cocktails.
