Stiletto

Stiletto cocktail with bourbon and amaretto

Fun fact: Amaretto, while it tastes like almonds, is actually made from apricot pits. Apricots and almonds are in the same family along with peaches and other stone fruit. This drink reminded us of a classy version of Southern Comfort and lime, and when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Southern Comfort was once a bourbon liqueur made from peach pits (the recipe has been changed to use artificial flavorings instead). So if you’d like to get an idea of what real SoCo & Lime used to taste like, try this cocktail; it’s the closest you’re likely to get.
