Amaretto

Amaretto is a nut-flavored liqueur that has a taste resembling almonds, even though it is made from the kernels of apricot pits. Although the first Amaretto liqueur originated in Italy, many other distillers are now making their own versions. There are also a variety of recipes for Amaretto using other liquors such as vodka and brandy combined with extracts and sugar.
