Orgeat works as a sweetener so substituting amaretto for orgeat can be the way to go. This give the same flavor profile, but is more booze, so can give a bigger impact on the drink.

Orgeat is the French form of the word from the Italian word orzata which means barley water. The almond, a product of excellence here in Sicily, is the protagonist of all Sicilian confectionery preparations: biscuits, creams, ice creams, granitas, puddings and even summer drinks. Among the latter, we can find almond milk and the orzata. What we are talking about is an emulsion, so they form a cloudy liquid. Milk, butter, Hollandaise and mayonnaise are all emulsions, as well.
The process uses almonds crushed up in a mortar while adding water. This would extract the oils in the almonds and emulsify it in water. After, the mush sat for a while, and was filtered through cloth and the liquid was used in place of milk. Plus, it doesn’t go rancid, so there was no need for refrigeration.
