Almond Flavored Cocktail

Here’s another experiment.

  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • 1/4 oz Orgeat Syrup (I used Giffard’s)
  • 3 Dashes of Fee Brothers Black Walnut Bitters
  • Had nothing almondy in my house so I garnished with an Almond Roca

This drink is far from being perfected. I would imagine it as a lighter fragrant drink with a hint of almond.

It actually tastes pretty good, but it’s a bit sweet for my liking. Amaretto is already ¬†pretty sweet on it’s own and after adding the Orgeat Syrup, I think it gets too sweet.

This cocktail is similar to the Godfather

  • 1 1/2 oz Blended Scotch
  • 1/2 oz Amaretto
  • Build on Ice and serve in old-fashion glass

The ratio for the godfather really depends on your preference for sweetness. It can be 1:1, 2:1, 3:1.
