Romantic Disaronno Cocktails - Posted: February 13, 2009
The Disaronno Amaretto is arguably the world’s favorite Italian liqueur. Gifted with a hint of loving flavor, it is one of the most romantic cocktail ingredients with an equally heart-warming story to boot.
According to legend, the Disaronno found its beginnings from the kitchen of a young widow who found romance in the arms of Milanese artist Bernadino Luini during the Renaissance Period. Story has it that Bernadino commissioned the young woman to model for a fresco he was making of the Madonna. After spending months laboring over the work, they fell passionately in love. The woman created the sweet almond liqueur as a sign of her devotion for her newfound lover.
