Orgeat: Character for Your Cocktails

     I've been playing around with Orgeat here lately with some very interesting results.  This is a syrup that lends itself very well to many types of cocktails.  It's almond flavor is very welcomed and adds some unique character to many cocktails.  Here is a simple daiquiri that I found to be really enjoyable with the addition of Orgeat to bring it to life.

Almond Lime Daiquiri

  • 2 oz. Doorly’s Macaw Barbados White Rum
  • 1 oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
  • 1 oz. Orgeat
  • ¼ oz. Lime Juice

Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.   Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an orange zest.
