Based on a classic Italian sweet almost-flavoured liqueur, the name Amaretto means 'a little bitter' in Italian. Although Amaretto is thought to be an almond-flavoured liqueur, its is often made with apricot kernels, inspired by the flavour and fascinating history of the popular Amaretto, MONIN Amaretto delivers a decadent bittersweet taste of this popular liqueur and is a perfect addition for any classy cocktails. Italian themed desserts and after-dinner drinks.

MONIN Amaretto Syrup will bring the unrivalled softness of almond with a delicate fruity note of apricot to all of your beverages, either hot or cold, and will transport you to Italy. It pairs wonderfully with orchard fruits and red fruits and is delicious in milk-based coffee drinks. Its suave and exquisite flavour is a treat in after dinner cocktails to help draw out an excellent meal. I like adding it to a Clover Club, a classic cocktail with a raspberry base, for an intensely sweet sensation. If you have a sweet tooth, try an Affogato: a shot of espresso topped with Amaretto syrup and a ball of vanilla ice cream.
