I created this with some co-workers when I used to tend bar. It's quite refreshing.

Just discovered this (at a bar) via my ex-husband. Holy moley that is one TASTY cocktail! I've always seen it served as a shot. Don't be askeert of the amaretto if you don't like it (I don't) - the flavor doesn't stand out. Read More

As a bartender myself this drink is much better with equal parts of crown amaretto and cranberry juice. Read More

I totally had my doubts about this drink I'll admit. But it works. The amaretto mellows out the Crown which both combine well with the cranberry. And it's really smooth. I'd make this again. It'll be nice to have a couple more bottles of amaretto and Crown to make this our Christmas cocktail this year. Read More

Wow these were very good. I used light cranberry juice to make them and by the end of the night we ran out of alcohol to make them they were that good! Read More

Order this at a bar and pay about 6 here in ATL and the size is about a forth of this recipe. Most bars use Crown although I made it at home with a good quality Canadian blend and it is awesome! Highly recommend! Read More

LOVED this!! Had a touch of Crown leftover so decided to give this a shot. Went based off of memory as to the amounts of what to use - mine was a touch stronger than intended (used all equal parts whiskey/amaretto/red sugar cranberry juice) - threw in some frozen blueberries for a patriotic drink and loved the taste!

This is delicious. Next time I will add a little more whiskey I thought the amaretto was the most dominating flavor. Read More
