What is Orgeat Syrup:

Orgeat (pronounced "or-zat") syrup is an almond-flavored syrup that is commonly used in cocktails, most notably in the Mai Tai, other tiki and classic cocktails. For those designing a "classic" bar, orgeat is an essential mixer to have in stock.

The syrup is typically made of blanched almonds, water, sugar, and orange flower water. It is available from online and in liquor stores, or you can make it yourself using a recipe such as this one on Art of Drink.
