I have this one bottle of amaretto that I bought to try in a drink recipe for my birthday years ago. Amaretto is one of those things that I don't think goes with a lot so I always have trouble finding ways to use it. I decided to look up some drink recipes the other day that include amaretto. I found a site that had a million options. I made a note of a few that I had all the ingredients for and decided to give one a try. What I landed on was a Blue Cloud Drink.
1 oz Amaretto
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
2 oz Vanilla Ice Cream
Top with whipped cream and a cherry (I didn't have cherries so I used jimmies!)
I thought this seemed like a yummy dessert drink, perfect for after dinner. All you do is mix all of the ingredients (minus the toppings) in a blender. Pour in a glass and top with whipped cream and a cherry and or jimmies. This is a fun looking drink and tastes pretty good. I thought the amaretto was a little strong, I might adjust the measurements if I made it again. I think with the whipped cream and sprinkles it would be fun to serve at a birthday party!
I only had one drink so I still had some amaretto left. After a failed experiment trying to make a chocolate cherry shot, I ended up just making an amaretto and Diet Pepsi with a lime twist. It was delicious and I wish I had thought of this before.
