Cocktail time: Amaretto and Cranberry Juice

Well, hello there! We’ve not enjoyed a Cocktail Time at Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub for quite a while, so let’s have one now. Although, this drink is less of a classic cocktail and more like something I just made up. Though it tastes so good, I’m sure you’ll love it.

Ideal as a winter seasonal comforter or a summer refresher, Amaretto and cranberry juice is highly recommended.

Amaretto & Cranberry Juice

  • Amaretto
  • Cranberry juice
  • Ice
  • Marashino cherry

Ok, really simple: pour two measures of Amaretto into a glass. Even though I’m not (sadly) endorsed by the company, I’d recommend Disaronno as the liqueur of choice. Drop in a few ice cubes to keep it all chill. Then top up with cranberry juice (your choice from your local supermarket), add an optional Marashino cherry, and you’re done.

The Marashino cherry works particularly well with this drink, complimenting the taste of the cocktail.

This drink is delicious, but has no name (as far as I’m aware). If you know the correct name, please let me know. Or just let me know your suggestions. Otherwise, as with the rules of trick invention in skateboarding, I invented the drink and I’m naming it.

I’d also just say that Amaretto is a wonderful drink just on its own, or with ice: it makes a fantastic digestif. Adding cranberry juice is an excellent alternative option.

Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub urges you to drink responsibly.
