What could be better after a nice dinner than a shot of Amaretto and a cup of coffee?

Why a shot of homemade Amaretto and a cup of coffee!


Margo got me started on making homemade Amaretto. When I met her she used to make Kahlua. Nothing fancy, but good. Now I wasn’t much of a Kahlua drinker, but I loved Amaretto,  so I set out to see if I could make my own.

Sure enough, I figured it out. But of course that was not enough. The presentation was lacking. So I had to figure out how to make labels and cap off the top to make it look professional.

The labels were fairly easy to make. I used mailing labels turned sideways and they just stick on (after some cutting). I use a tasting cork to seal the used wine bottles. And then I put the foil wrapper on and dip it in boiling water to “shrink” it and the process is complete!

They make nice personalized gifts for the holidays or special occasions. I have even had friends ask me to make them some for special occasions! LOL

So now I am ready for the holidays! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
