If you have not heard of Amaretto, then you have no idea what you are missing. Amaretto is a sweet almond Italian liqueur. If you like almonds and liqueurs then you will love this drink. A word of warning, it is so easy to drink that it is very easy to over do it and find you are more drunk than you thought you were!

Skip past the usual warnings of alcohol and then come to the enjoyment. Amaretto is a catch name for all the Italian almond liqueurs, however Amaretto Disaronno is a brand name. I have tried a huge range of Italian almond liqueurs but none seem to be quite as great tasting as Disaronno.

Disaronno has become a marketing name as it originates from Saronno (Di Saronno). They also claim that the recipe has been unchanged since 1525 and I do believe that. After all, why mess with perfection? Even the bottle is a wonderful piece which was designed in Murano (known for their glass). Disaronno can be drunk on the rock, in a cocktail (I should list some cocktails), with additions such as coke or lemonade or simply neat! I always recommend neat – after all who wants to dilute or mess with perfection?
