Wine Maker Notes
Amaretto liqueur is said to have been invented by the woman who modeled for Renaissance-era Italian painter, Bernardino Luini, in 1525. Luini, a follower of Leonardo da Vinci’s art style, chose the mother of a local child to be his model for the Madonna. In return she gave him ringraziarlo – a gift, a drink distilled from almonds.
Bols Amaretto is essential for classic drinks such as the Amaretto Sour, and also for more modern drinks like the Alabama Slammer.
