Amaretto

Definition: Amaretto


Amaretto
A liqueur with the distinct flavor of almonds, though it's often made with apricot pit kernels. The original liqueur, Amaretto di Saronno, is from Saronno, Italy - although many American distilleries now produce their own amaretto. It is usually served straight, on the rocks, or mixed into a cocktail and is often an ingredient used to enhance baked goods or desserts (as seen in my recipe for
Amaretto Mousse

).

I'm not a very big fan of sweet drinks, but amaretto is one of my favorite liquers... I love it in coffee or on the rocks for an after dinner drink. The smell instantly relaxes me!

That is so strange that you can get an almond flavor from an apricot pit! I didn't know that's what it was made from at all, it is good in a lot of recipes though. _________________________ Oh Hayden!
