What is Amaretto?

You may have heard of the popular drink, the classic Amaretto Sour. Amaretto is an Italian liqueur with an almond flavor. It is also made with apricot pits and added spices. Probably the most famous amaretto liqueur is Disaronno. 

Amaretto has many uses beyond cocktails, including adding to pancake mix, cakes, ice cream, and other desserts.
