Summary

Amaretto is a popular almond-flavored liqueur. Despite its almond flavor, it doesn't always contain almonds — it's made from either apricot pits or almonds or both. Amaretto is Italian for "little bitter" as amaretto has a sweetened flavor with slightly bitter notes.

There are two families that claim the title of amaretto inventors. One tale goes that the Lazaronni family of Saronno, Italy, had been long known for its amaretto cookies, and introduced the sweet liqueur to the market in 1851.

The Reina family on the other hand claims that a widow who posed for Renaissance painter Bernardino Luini in 1525 made her amaretto potion for him. This recipe is said to have been handed down for generations and is currently marketed as Disaronno® Originale Liqueur.

Amaretto is essential to making some of the most popular cocktails and shooters.
