Falernum is a sweet syrup used in Caribbean and tropical drinks. It contains flavors of almond, ginger and/or cloves, and lime, and sometimes vanilla or allspice. It is used in cocktails in a manner similar to orgeat syrup or can be drunk on the rocks. The syrup form can be alcoholic or nonalcoholic. The consistency is thick, the colour can be white to light amber, and it may be clear or translucent. Some reports have the origination of Falernum dated back to the 18th century.
