The boy and his poison: The Lazy Amaretto & Ginger

Have you ever noticed that stray bottle of amaretto lurking in the back of you kitchen cabinet? Don't worry, until it was pointed out to me I hadn't either. Amaretto has a habit of sneaking into your drinks cabinet like some sort of liqueur ninja, but fear not, in one sip this deliciously lazy recipe will have you ordering bottles of the stuff like its going out of fashion.

Something about the way the heat of the ginger and the tart freshness of the limes compliments the almondy sweetness of the liqueur makes it one of those rare drinks thats as appropriate on a summers day as it is curled up on a sofa shaking your fists at winter.  But don't take my word for it.

You'll need:
  • 50ml Disaronno (or a decent slug of the bottle)
  • 25ml Lime Juice (half a lime if you’ve given up measuring)
  • Fiery ginger beer to top it up 
Stir it:
  • Pour the Amaretto into an iced glass.
  • Add more ice and squeeze half a lime over the liqueur. 
  • Drop the half lime into the drink and top up with ginger beer.

  2. We like that kind of thinking around these parts.

  3. My new favourite autumn tipple!

  4. I've been told I'm not actually allowed to buy disaronno any more due to the way it seems to evaporate over a weekend. I don't even like sweet drinks!
