Amaretto is an almond liqueur. It is sweet, and has an almost cherry-like taste. Amaretto is produced from a base of apricot pits, peach pits, or almonds. If you’ve ever tasted almond extract or desserts made from it, this will be familiar. The aroma matches the taste. The alcohol is almost lost in the flavor. You could drink this straight, but again, it would be a very sweet drink on its own.
If you need something to try, the Amaretto Sour is the perfect cocktail to start with.
