It’s full on fast paced action packed holiday season. Deny it if you will, but it’s December and time is flying by this year in a blink and I haven’t been able to catch up. Don’t let the holiday season sneak up on you and your cocktail parties without a fun new drink to serve your (sometimes unexpected) guests.

This cocktail was created by my father during an evening of recipe development with Captain Morgan rum, and this drink is kind of a hit in my house.

What is Almond Liqueur?

You most likely know this as Amaretto. Originally flavored from bitter almonds, modern commercial brands are often prepared from a base of apricot stones, peach stones, or almonds, all of which provide an almond-like flavor to the liquor.

Meet The Black Almond

Well, when mixed with a solid dose of black rum and triple sec, the flavors balance out to an incredibly smooth and drinkable cocktail.  This one may become your friday night staple.
