Amaretto (Italian for "a little bitter") is a sweet Italian liqueur that originated in Saronno, Italy. While originally flavoured from bitter almonds, various modern commercial brands are prepared from a base of apricot pits, peach pits, or almonds, all of which are natural sources of the benzaldehyde that provides the principal almond-like flavour of the liqueur.[1][2]

When served as a beverage, amaretto can be drunk by itself, used as an ingredient to create several popular mixed drinks, or added to coffee.
