AmarettoCocktail Ingredient Glossary » Amaretto
Amaretto is a generally sweet liqueur originating from Italy from the mid-16th century. It is made from a base of almonds or apricot pits, and the name implies "bitter" in Italian, as a slight bitterness is imparted by the kernels used in the cooking.
It is often drunk "neat" or on the rocks, and is used in several official International Bartender's Association cocktails.
