Amaretto Cocktail Recipes – 5 Delicious Reasons To Say Cheers!

National Amaretto Day this weekend has truly inspired us here at Everybody Loves Cocktails. There is no secret that we love cocktails, it is the reason why we are here. These cocktails are our favorite of the week…and it’s only Wednesday! From a cocktail that tastes like an Almond Joy to one that is reminiscent of Birthday Cake.  Yes, you read that correctly.  There’s even one that could actually be a dessert but, we don’t think you will mind giving it a taste test also! A big thank you to the various sites we visited to find and taste test these yummy delights!

Ok, so this is sort of really a dessert. But it’s served in wine goblets, so we will just look the other way. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

6 large egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup amaretto
1 cup heavy cream
Lightly toasted slivered almonds and dark chocolate shavings, for garnish

Boozy Banana Cream Pie Milkshake

Instructions:

In the top of a double boiler (off of the heat) whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and Amaretto until lightly colored and frothy. Set the pan over simmering water (don’t let the bottom of the pan touch the water) and whisk until the mixture thickens to the point where it will coat the back of a spoon (about 8 to 10 minutes).

Remove the mixture from heat and transfer to a bowl. Let cool and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 30 minutes.

In a large bowl using an electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in the chilled amaretto mixture. Distribute the mixture evenly among long-stemmed wine goblets and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Right before serving, garnish with toasted almond slivers and chocolate shavings.
