What is Amaretto?

It is a type of alcoholic drink, originating from Italy. It's a liqueur flavored with almonds, or the almond-like kernels from apricots, peaches, etc. Amaretto is available in many brands in all groceries, supermarkets, liquor stores etc. in Italy. The most popular is Amaretto Di Saronno (from Saronno) made from apricot stones containing 28.0% ethanol (56 proof). It has a characteristic bittersweet almond taste. Another brand is Lazzaroni Amaretto (24% ethanol; 48 proof) produced in Saronno, since 1851.
