Orgeat as a sub for almond extract and simple syrup?
I am curious about this recipe and the FOGG CUTTER recipe featured in BB's Remixed. They both contains almond extract and simple syrup...I don't have any almond extract, but maybe I can use orgeat instead of simple syrup + almond extract?
Fogg Cutter (Bali Hai, New Orleans, LA)
2 oz Orange Juice
1½ Simple Syrup
1 Light Rum
1 Dark Rum
½ tsp Almond Extract
Put it all in a blender with 1 cup of crushed ice and blend on high for five seconds. Pour unstrained into a tall glass.

Yes, I'd just use orgeat in place of the simple syrup. Later, if you get some almond extract, you can make one for comparison. I'll bet they are very similar.
