Notes for the vanilla almond margarita

What is orgeat? Orgeat is like a sweet nutty syrup that adds a tasty vibe to cocktails. It’s made by mixing almonds, sugar, and water – simple and yummy. The almonds give it a nutty kick, and the sweetness makes it delightful. It works great in cocktails because it brings a rich flavor without being too overpowering. Just a splash can make your drink taste special. So, if you want a sweet, nutty twist in your cocktail, try orgeat – it’s a game-changer for flavor, especially this vanilla almond margarita! We recommend Giffard Syrups (not sponsored), they are relatively affordable and have pretty solid quality.

For the vanilla extract, BE SURE NOT TO ADD MORE THAN ONE DROP. It will overpower everything in the drink and we don’t want that!
