Delicious! I opted not to put the almonds on top of the whipped cream in the coffee as there is one thing I don't like is "lumps" in my coffee! Made for the Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe.

Made the coffee double strength then added ice, then the Amaretto, whip cream and almonds. They are really delicious on these hot summer nights and days!

I really loved the flavor of the coffee and Amaretto together! I really wasn't sure about the almonds though, since a lot of them sank to the bottom of the cup. I think I would have preferred a sprinkle of cocoa or cinnamon on top instead. Made for ZWT4 Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
