On the list of all things fall, Apple Amaretto Sours should be at the top!
Not gonna lie, we like to drink and I’ve learned to make a few of the liquors we particularly like Irish Cream, Kahlua, Amaretto, and a few others. I make those the most because they all go into what we call “special coffee”, more about that later. It seems to cause some people to confuse lizards and chipmunks the next day.
First a little history of Amaretto:
Despite the known history on the introduction and acceptance of almonds into Italian cuisine, newer takes on the meanings and origins have been popularized by the two major brands. Though of sometimes questionable factuality, these tales hold a sentimental place in Saronno culture.
In 1525, a Saronno church commissioned artist Bernardino Luini, one of Leonardo da Vinci’s pupils, to paint their sanctuarywith frescoes. As the church was dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Luini needed to depict the Madonna, but was in need of a model. He found his inspiration in a young widowed innkeeper, who became his model and (in most versions) lover. Out of gratitude and affection, the woman wished to give him a gift. Her simple means did not permit much, so she steeped apricot kernels in brandy and presented the resulting concoction to a touched Luini.
