Can I substitute amaretto for orgeat?

Hi everyone,

I love Trinidad Sours (Angostura bitters, orgeat, rye, and lemon juice). I'd like to start making them at home, but I prefer to use things that I already have on hand if I can manage it.

Would it be a terrible idea to substitute Disaronno for the orgeat syrup? I have a feeling it might be a bit harsh but I thought I'd ask the hive mind for their opinion.
