Pros: Makes great mixed drinks.
Cons: Tastes a lot like candy, therefore getting you drunk quicker!
I work in a local drinking establishment as a cocktail waitress. Before I worked here I was rather ignorant about the different types of liquers available out there. Now that I have been introduced to the many different drinks available I have come up with one of my own. I love drinks that are sweet, and lack the burn of whiskey.
The drink that i came up with combines some of my favorite flavors, Dr.Pepper, cherry, and Almonds. I have yet to develop a name for this drink, so if you have any ideas leave a comment.
To make this interesting concoction simply mix 2 ounces of Amaretto, Dr. Pepper, and a splash of Roses Grenadine in a 16 ounce glass over ice. I have recommended this drink to several of my customers and they are now loyal drinkers.
This drink is also great with Coke. I found this out when I recently took a trip to Las Vegas, NV. Dr. Pepper is almost unheard of in the bars there.
I also want to point out that there is a better flavor with the Amaretto di Saronno Originale. I have tried the regular well types of amaretto and have not had the same great taste as with this premiere brand. In comparison the cheap amaretto is like drinking Sauza tequila instead of Patron tequila, there is a very big difference.
Happy drinking to all who read, and I hope you enjoy the recipe i have given you.
