Cinnamon AlmondsUnlike most almond liqueurs that simply attempt to replicate Amaretto, this one is based on cinnamon-spiced nuts found at cocktail parties.   Its unique flavor combination affords a confection-like aftertaste that is well worth the trouble of making and consuming this liqueur.

It makes an extraordinary cocktail, adding just a hint of cinnamon and almond without overpowering the decoction.
