Ask the Professor: Orgeat Ingredients

I'm starting a new feature here on Professor Cocktail: Ask the Professor. This is your chance to write in and ask me anything. I may not have an answer…but if I don't, I can probably make something up.

Kevin writes to ask:

Would you mind posting the nutrition information for the Small Hand Foods Orgeat and the Routin 1883? I'm working on tweaking my orgeat recipes and that info would help, thanks!

An easy one! Yes, Kevin, I can do that.

Small Hand Foods Orgeat contains: Water, Organic Cane Sugar, Almonds, Apricot Kernels, Organic Lemon Juice, Orange Blossom Water, Brandy (.5% abv)

Routin 1883 Orgeat contains: Cane Sugar, Water, Natural Flavor

My recipe for orgeat contains water, sugar, almonds, orange flower water, and a little high-proof vodka as a preservative. I've tried it with the addition of rose flower water as well, but I didn't think it added anything.

On a related note…Don't miss the Professor Cocktail Orgeat Taste Test.

And please
send in your own questions, or leave them as a comment on one of the posts.

  1. Wow! Thanks so much. I’m super honored that you did a whole post just because of my question.
    But just to clarify – I was looking for the actual numbers from the little black and white box on the back, with the calories, grams of sugar, etc.
    Specifically, I was hoping to know the fat, protein and sugar content of the small hand orgeat. Could you post that info?
    Thanks so much again!
