My husband and I drank these a lot on our honeymoon in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The first few sips taste a bit like cough syrup, but after that, they are very good. Serve over ice. It is also good to add a little bit of sprite to it if you find that it is too strong. Let me know what you think. It seems like you either love it or hate it! I just want to keep the recipe so we can remember Mexico! ;) UPDATE: 08/05/2009 since posting this like two days ago, I have made a few of them each night for DH and I to enjoy on our deck in the hot afternoons and evenings here. I have found that, if you use the ocean spray diet cranberry it is super yummy. Just an FYI!
- 1 ounce Amaretto
- 1 ounce vodka
- 4 ounces cranberry juice (I suggest Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry)
- 2 ounces Sprite (optional)
- lime wedge (optional)
- Pour all three over ice.
- Mix well.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
- If it is too strong, add 2 ounces of sprite.
I enjoyed this cocktail. The amaretto and cranberry juice combine to form a very unique flavor sensation that really works well in a cocktail. Thanks, SarahBeth.
We liked the taste but something was missing so I added peach sparkling water. Thanks SarahBeth :) Made for 123 hit wonders
This drink was delicious! I really enjoyed the addition of amaretto to the cape cod recipe; I also added a bit of Sprite, as suggested. These can be dangerous! I can't wait to have them again! Thanks for sharing, SarahBeth.
