I'm going to use a friend's recipe to make some orgeat this weekend for his (commercial) bar, but more importantly, make extra for my house. Does anyone have any experience with preservation methods? Vodka/Brandy seem to be one route, but I was thinking of using Ball jars. Orgeat doesn't seem acidic enough to preserve with the hot water method...is it? I've never tried pressure canning before.

visited the Italian market yesterday and got a bottle of Toschi orgeat, imported from Italy.

it's quite concentrated, so in using it in a mai-tai i've followed the TV formula and used 1/4 orgeat with 1/4 rock candy syrup, instead of my usual method of using 1/2 oz orgeat while omitting the rock candy syrup. a necessary adjustment with the pungent Toschi!
