Every day a different drink. Not just how to make them, but a detailed review of how they actually taste, photos of the drinks, and stories along the way. Starting from the beginning, The Bartender's Black Book will be our guide, taking us

(and our livers) on a journey from which we may never recover. Cheers!

#59: Amore-ade

1 1/2 oz Amaretto
1/2 oz Triple Sec
Combine in a tall glass filled with ice.
Fill with soda water and stir.

I saw the other day that the Star Wars movies are going to be coming out on newly remastered Blu-Ray discs, so I thought I would post this plea for help from the Empire:


A thin watery drink that does nothing. This was weak, with almost no alcohol. Not just flavor wise, but by content, since liquers generally tend to have very low alcohol content, under 40 proof, anyway.

The Amaretto flavor was the strongest, but so what. It was odd to have carbonated Amaretto (from the soda water), but other than that, this had nothing to distinguish it in any way. Boring.
