This cocktail lives or dies on the quality of the orgeat that you use.  Use a quality brand or make it yourself.  

Without citrus juice to tame the orgeat's sweetness, here you are relying on the bitters and lemon peel.  Feel free to adjust the bitters upwards if the orgeat is too sweet.  

The Japanese Cocktail was originally served on the rocks before morphing into an up cocktail.  Feel free to try it on the rocks.  A little ice melt can help tame the orgeat.
