Amaretto is an Italian liqueur flavoured with almonds and apricots. Amaretto di Saronno is the original brand produced in Italy, but amaretto is now used as the generic term. Amaretto means ‘slightly bitter’, and refers to the bitter almonds that were traditionally used as its main flavouring ingredient. Amaretto was once best known as an after–dinner liqueur, but it is now used widely as an ingredient in cakes, sauces and cocktails.
