About this recipe: This vodka cocktail is reminiscent of a liqueur. Perfect for after dinner at your next party.
good result , but did find the sunflower oil from the Dr. Oetker Almond natural extract seperated and rose to the top of the bottle, which was then skimmed off. - 28 Oct 2008
I like Amaretto, but am a bit of a snob when it comes to the brand, I don't think anything is worth drinking unless it is the Disaronno, and I can honestly say, this recipe is so very close to Disaronno that I will make this rather than spend on the real thing now. Thank you so much for this great recipe. - 22 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I figured the best way to compare is to do a side by side comparison I followed the recipe exactly and used dark brown sugar. Two shots side by side the color was slightly different but I'm thinking it's just my brand of dark brown sugar. The scent of both was pretty dead on but Disarono has a slight rubbing alchohol leftover scent towards the end. Finally the taste test, the Disaronno had a slightly stronger and sharper aftertaste. This amaretto had a smoother, fuller, and a tad bit sweeter taste to it. Surprisingly I'd have to say I like this amaretto more than Disaronno. Give it a try. It's worth the effort and ingredients. - 10 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
