Great recipe. I added a little Pineapple Juice for sweetness and a splash of seltzer for a little zing.

Made this tonight, after a trip to a local fancy-pants liquor store for the ingredients. Too acidic, I found. Will add some simple syrup next time I make.

Brian, depending on the sweetness of your orgeat and your curacao and the tartness of your limes, you'r definitely going to get a little variation in the recipe. Absolutely feel free to add more gomme syrup to make it your own, just be sure to add only a little at a time (taste it while it's still in the shaker), because this drink especially can be cloying if too sweet. Cheers!
