Proof66 Notes

Velvet Falernum is a very lightly proofed liqueur from Barbados. It is almost a syrup with a bit of an alcohol bite and designed to sweeten certain traditional Caribbean / Polynesian cocktails such as the Mai Tai (presumably in place of orgeat syrup or similar). It contains a primary almond flavor (similar to orgeat) with additional other spices.

Not many uses, but for the few cocktails that need it, it's pretty much a necessity. Basically a sugar syrup with a small amount of white rum (11% ABV) and lime juice, and some flavor extracts of clove and almond. A super tasty syrup with a little spice to it that would be great in a Zombie or some other tropical/tiki deal, kind of like a cross between triple sec and orgeat. But you could also very easily make it yourself by making simple syrup with lime juice, a dash of rum and some almond extract and clove. Usually I can't give something a high rating if I could make it myself without even distilling anything.
