Orgeat (1/4 oz is enough) in place of the St. Germain is a really nice sub in this drink

This is such a nice drink if you like cocktails with sherry, which mixes very nicely with Cardamaro and Genever. I've subbed Farigoule thyme liqueur for the St. Germain, and Dimmi for the St. Germain when I had a sweeter sherry open (Lustau East India Solera). It is flexible and really delicious.

I second the orgeat suggestion. Very tasty! To be fair, I haven't tried it with St. Germain yet, but I will!
