Loch Almond

  • 1.5 oz Scotch
  • 1.5 oz Amaretto
  • Ginger ale to top

Pour into tall ice-filled glass (highball) and stir.

I have never tried amaretto, but liquid, alcoholic marzipan sounds right up my street. I like whisky and ginger. This should be a perfect, easy drink to road test the amaretto which arrived recently.

I found it a little sweet. The amaretto is overpowering, I would use less if I make it again. I do love the flavours though, they are just unbalanced.

I’m struggling to come to grips with the fact that I know I have a sweet tooth, and yet am finding recipes which are too sweet for my taste. I think I just like sweetness but with some sour balance.
