Amaretto

Amaretto is a sweet, almond-flavoured, Italian liqueur. It is made from a base of apricot pits or almonds, sometimes both.Di-Saronno-Amaretto

Usage

Amaretto serves a variety of culinary uses.

Cooking

  • Amaretto is added to desserts, including ice cream, which enhances the flavour of the dessert with almonds and complements chocolate.
  • Tiramisu, a popular Italian cake, is often flavoured with either real amaretto or alcohol-free amaretto aroma.
  • Savoury recipes which call for it usually focus on meat, such as chicken.
  • A few shots of amaretto can be added to pancake batter for a richer flavour.
  • Amaretto is often added to almondine sauce for fish and vegetables.
  • Amaretto is often added to whipped cream.

Beverages

Amaretto may be served neat (by itself) or on the rocks (with ice). It is often added to other beverages to create several popular mixed drinks. It is also a popular choice of liqueur to add to coffee in the morning.

The following cocktails highlight Amaretto liqueur as a primary ingredient.

  • French Connection   –  Amaretto liqueur, Cognac and ice cubes
  • Godfather  –  Amaretto liqueur, Scotch and ice cubes.
  • Godmother  –  Amaretto liqueur, Vodka and ice cubes.

Substitute

  • Almond extract – As almond extract has a much stronger flavour, only use about ¼ of the amount of amaretto called for.
