Orgeat vs Almond Syrup

initialdrew | Jun 21, 2008 09:15 AM

I've been using an almond syrup that I bought at the local middle eastern market for Mai Tais, but was wondering if it's the same thing as orgeat. It's cloudy like orgeat, but it doesn't list orange flower water or rose water as an ingredient, although I don't think Torani lists that either.

So my question is, are all of these cloudy almond syrups the same thing as the orgeats out there?

Or should I order the fee brothers mix which is specifically designed for cocktails and not middle eastern desserts or coffee flavoring?

Are all these the same but with different labelings? I'm suspicious.
