  • Bright red and muddy orange wasn't that attractive. Tasted pretty good though. Similar Golden Gate Swizzle is better. — ★★★★

Out of curiosity I made toasted hazlenut orgeat, though I don't think it is really necessary. This is similar to (but not quite as good as) the Golden Gate Swizzle. I used Canton in place of ginger syrup, Rhum Barbancourt 8 yr rum, and strained it as I wasn't wanting the slushy preparation.

Love this beverage, Sother says you can use regular orgeat in place of the hazelnut and the drink won't suffer. It's really more of a float of Peychauds, the top sixth of the finalized drink should be red.

I used regular (homemade) orgeat, and did the Peychaud's as a float (though not quite 1/6—wasn't ready for that), and it's a lovely drink.
