A nice tropical drink for the warm winter we're having, the Aruba makes use of the floral scented orgeat syrup that I recently made. Orange blossom water and gin with iris root botanical contribute to this lovely flowery drink. The recipe calls for one ounce of lemon juice, but I fudged it a bit knowing that that much lemon would be pretty sour and the orgeat couldn't balance it. A store-bought orgeat or almond syrup you use in coffee might be have better luck with more sugar, but my orgeat is not that sweet. I'm changing the recipe to 1/2 ounce lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of orgeat to ensure that you will find the drink more pleasing.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 egg white
  • 2 tsp. orgeat syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
