Unique Nut Flavored Syrup: Amoretti Almond Orgeat
We have five unique nut flavored syrups here in the Amoretti store, but our current favorite flavor is definitely Amoretti Premium Almond Orgeat Syrup. We recently featured it in a Mai Tai recipe (perhaps the best way to use it). However, almond orgeat’s functionality certainly doesn’t stop there!
Coffee Syrup: Almond orgeat is wonderful as a coffee syrup. Use it in lattes or in regular drip coffee to make an ordinary beverage taste gourmet. A little bit of our almond orgeat syrup goes a long way in a cup of coffee. Add just one and a half pumps to 8 ounces of a hot beverage for the perfect ratio. If you’re drinking iced coffee or an iced latte, make that one and three quarter pumps for every 8 ounces.
Tea Syrup: If you aren’t a coffee drinker, don’t worry… we’ve got you covered! This nut flavored syrup goes especially well in black tea. Earl Grey and bourbon vanilla are two of our favorite types of tea for using almond orgeat syrup. Generally speaking, the almond flavor compliments sweet and “toasted” teas more than fruity or herbal-infused black teas.
Cocktails: We already mentioned the Mai Tai, which is by far the most popular alcoholic beverage for almond orgeat syrup. However, you can use Amoretti Premium Almond Orgeat Syrup in many more cocktails. Pair this syrup with darker, sweeter spirits like bourbon, spiced/dark rum, cognac, and brandy. Generally speaking, dryer dark spirits (rye whiskey, for example) and clear spirits aren’t as good a match for almond orgeat.
Baking: Did you know that many types of baklava use almond orgeat syrup to get their unique flavor? Last week we covered some of the floral syrups that go into baklava. However, try adding this nut flavored syrup to your dessert recipe to get a result that is totally your own. Also, use our almond orgeat coffee syrup in cookies, cakes, and other tasty desserts.
While Amoretti Premium Almond Orgeat Syrup is great year-round, we believe that (the Mai Tai aside) there’s no better time of year for it than winter. It brings a toasty-warm flavor to whatever recipe you use it in. If you’ve never tried almond orgeat before, there’s no better time than now. Why? It’s simple… we stand behind our products 100%. If you aren’t as thrilled about them as we are, we’ll make things right. Give this coffee syrup a try today!
