Blasphemy! I really don't think orgeat syrup is so pricey that it is something to skimp on....! Besides, orgeat has more flavor components than almond syrup.... citrus, vanilla, almond.....

Monin syrups only uses natural ingridients and can be bought online at the Monin Store. I personally use their Orgeat and Passionfruit syrups and I'm very pleased. Note that their syrups are highly concentrated so the drink recipes might need to be adjusted a little bit (for example I'm using 1/3 ounce Monin Orgeat instead of the original 1/2 ounce in a Bali Hai Mai Tai).




I agree with using less of Monin's Orgeat than what's called for in the recipe. However, I think the passion fruit syrup needs to be in the same quantity as the recipe. I just stocked up on bar supplies and got 3 bottles of the passion fruit syrup, 1 orgeat. I also got 1 Trader Vic's orgeat for comparisson.

The Bali Hai version is also very handy if you don't have any fresh lime at home

Today I found Orzata syrup at our local Italian specialty store. It's basically the same thing as Orgeat, and it was only $3.49 for a big bottle. So if you are in the northeast and are having a hard time finding Orgeat, most of us have access to Italian markets. Check 'em out.

I've been using that Orzata stuff now for over a year. It is a good value and easy to find in Italian Grocery's...Not that I added anything new to the Suffering Bastard's post, except to say that I'm in the North West part of the continent...
