Orgeat Syrup

Orgeat syrup is a sweet syrup made from almonds, sugar, and water. It is typically used as a flavoring in cocktails and other beverages, and also in desserts. Orgeat syrup has a distinct nutty flavor and is often used in tiki-style cocktails such as Mai Tais and Hurricanes. It can also be used as a substitute for simple syrup in various drinks and desserts to add a unique almond flavor. Orgeat syrup can be purchased pre-made or can be made at home using almonds, sugar, and water.
