DiSaronno Amaretto is a delicious, gloopy, sweet, Italian, almond flavoured liqueur made surprisingly from apricot or almond pits.
As other reviewers have said, it tastes a little of marzipan but if someone told me that before I tried it I would have been a little put off as my experience of marzipan is thick layers of the stuff covering a bitter fruitcake topped with royal icing... yuck! So if you're not a fan of marzipan do still give amaretto a go it's really yummy!
I love to drink amaretto neat over ice, with diet coke or mixed with Baileys, Kahlua, cream and ice for a "screaming orgasm" cocktail. I also love it over ice cream, pancakes and any dessert made with peaches, in coffee, hot chocolate, mixed with chocolate milk to make a "Lumumba" style cocktail in fact, ANYTHING which needs a sweetener with a kick.
It comes in a funky rectangular shaped bottle with a square shaped lid and I've seen it in 5cl (miniature approx £3) 50cl (approx £11-£12ish) 70cl (approx £15ish) and litre (but only duty free) sizes
Summary: Don't be put off if you don't like marzipan, give it a go, you might be surprised!
