Amaretto, Cocktail Club - Thurs March 23rd
This week we are focusing on amaretto cocktails. Amaretto is a sweetened distilled spirit. It gets its character from steeped almonds, apricot pits (which have a distinct almond flavor), peach stones, or a mix of the three. Most producers are secretive about their recipes.
Blackberry Amaretto Sour. The amaretto sour is a classic cocktail that came out of American bars during the 1970s. No one knows who invented it, but almost everyone agrees that this is a fantastic drink. Made with just a few ingredients, it's also easy to mix up, and there are several tasty variations to explore.
The Bocce Ball. The main elements in any bocce ball are amaretto and orange juice. The almond notes pair very well with citrus, creating a fun twist on the average orange juice highball.
