Today we will talk about cocktails based on the wonderful Disaronno Originale liqueur, from Lombardy in northern Italy.

What is Disaronno?

Disaronno Originale is a type of amaretto liqueur containing 28% alcohol. It is an aromatic amber-colored liqueur with a distinctive almond flavor, although it does not actually contain almonds. And the almond bitter taste is achieved through the successful mixing of different ingredients that are kept secret.

According to the manufacturer, the liqueur is an infusion of apricot oil with “absolute alcohol, burnt sugar and the pure essence of seventeen selected herbs and fruits.” The liqueur is produced in Saronno, in the Lombardy region, in the north of Italy and is appreciated by true gourmets around the world. The liqueur is sold in an oblong glass decanter designed by a sculptor from Murano.

There is a beautiful legend about the origin of the drink. In 1525, Bernardino Luini, one of the disciples of Leonardo da Vinci, frescoed the sanctuary of the church in the town of Saronno. Luini had to portray the Madonna, whose image was based on a young widowed innkeeper. As a gift, the woman soaked apricot kernels in brandy, making the first Amaretto liqueur.

What mixes good with Disaronno?

Disaronno can be drunk neat with ice or added to various cocktails. This liqueur goes well with other alcoholic drinks, Coca-Cola, ginger ale or freshly squeezed fruit juice. The amaretto family of liqueurs is also widely used in Italian cuisine. It is added to chocolate, coffee ice cream, tiramisu, and even meat marinade. It can also be added to hot chocolate and is an ingredient in the Italian version of the heady Irish coffee.

Is amaretto and Disaronno the same drink?

In general, yes. Although the drink does not directly contain almonds (which many consider mandatory for amaretto), but its taste is mimicked by other ingredients, which, in my opinion, makes it even more interesting. In addition, until 2001 the drink was called Amaretto di Saronno (Amaretto from Saronno). It was later renamed for marketing reasons.
