    this is seriously amazing. i made some revisions (no confectioners' sugar and not mixing the amaretto in until the drink was poured) but otherwise AWESOME!  -  31 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good, but very sweet. Try salting the rim, it adds a bit of contrast to the sweet.  -  03 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
