FWIW, try making great with organic almond milk (available at your nearest Hostile Foods), buying the little "kid packs" where available, so you only have to make a little at time.

Using almond milk saves you the whole blanch-squish-strain trip. Just add sugar and orange flower water and rosewater and you're good to go. This is ideal if you're Trader Vic-ing for a whole crowd.

HTH!

I stumbled on to this thread looking for super quick home-brew Orgeat. Simply as an alternative to the commercial syrups that border $10-12 per bottle and are low quality. I found Ahu orgeat #1:

2 cups of the organic sugar
2 cups of the almond milk
1 cup plain water
4 teaspoons organic almond extract
1 tbsp rose flower water
1/2 cup Cruzan light rum

And it's been working for me. Has anyone ever eliminated water completely from the mix? How did it turn out? Did Ahu ever make #2? Mine seems a bit watery possibly because i'm not cooking it down extensively.


Cheers
