Amaretto liqueur

Curious that in many cocktail drinks recipes, amaretto liqueur is often referred to as amaretto almond liqueur. Although amaretto liqueur is “almond flavored”, it is made with apricot or almond pits, or both, and the bitterness id offset with sweeteners.


Amaretto comes from Italy although its exact history is disputed with the Lazzaroni family of Saronno and the Reina family, former workers of the Lazzaroni family, both claiming the distinction of having invented the recipe for the liqueur.
