Homemade Amaretto is an Easy to Make Gift

Amaretto is an Italian almond flavored liqueur or cordial that is easy to make at home. Put it in a pretty bottle and give it as a gift. Stock it in your liquor cabinet for addition to mixed drinks. Or, my personal favorite, pour a little over vanilla ice cream with some shaved chocolate for a simple and elegant dessert.

We have had this recipe in the family for years thanks to a friend of my parents. Truthfully it is a tough call for me which I like better, this or the Homemade Kahlua.
