Disaronno, an Italian amaretto liquor, is a sweet, almond-flavored dessert cordial with a 28% alcohol by volume (ABV) that hails from the northern Italian city of Saronno (hence the name, which translates to “from Saronno”). Disaronno Velvet Cream Liqueur is a new cream liqueur version of the ubiquitous amaretto that is also made with apricot pit kernels or bitter almonds for its signature nutty flavor, but it contains dairy cream to round it out and provides a thick and luscious mouthfeel. Much like its predecessor, Disaronno Velvet is a fantastic dessert liqueur that can be added to coffee, included in a fun cocktail, or simply enjoyed on its own in a classic rocks glass over ice.
Like the original Disaronno Amaretto, Disaronno Velvet Cream Liqueur has the distinctive and signature flavor of almond with subtle notes of cherry, but this new cream version is also described as having an additional creamy vanilla-almond flavor and an aroma reminiscent of toasted coconut and vanilla bean ice cream. Blended with real dairy cream, Disaronno Velvet Cream Liqueur has a deep and luxuriant mouthfeel that finishes silky and smooth, making it excellent for mixing with spiced or bitter elements such as cinnamon liqueurs, coffee, and Angostura bitters. At just 17% ABV, this deliciously smooth liqueur is a great addition to any dessert cocktail lineup.
Disaronno Velvet is a surprisingly versatile and highly drinkable cream liqueur that can be just as easily mixed into a wide variety of foods and beverages as it can be simply enjoyed on its own. For a fun, creamy-dreamy, low-alcohol summer cocktail, mix equal parts Disaronno Velvet with coconut water, shake well with ice, and enjoy in a tall Collins glass with a reusable straw. You can also replace any cream liqueur (such as Irish cream) from any favorite classic cocktail recipe (such as a Mudslide) with Disaronno Velvet for a sweet, toasted vanilla element. Disaronno Velvet is also a delicious substitute for half-and-half or creamer in your after-dinner coffee.
Disaronno has long been a wildly popular and well-known amaretto liqueur and has made an excellent gift for various reasons and seasons throughout its time.
