Godfather 101

Scotch Whiskey , Modern Classics

Instead of stocking bottles of amaretto liqueur, Jeremy Allen of MiniBar in Los Angeles makes his own using discarded the tiny bitter kernels encased in discarded cherry pits. He gets the pits from the cherry juicing process when he makes maraschino cherries for cocktails and when he cures cherries to be used as garnishes. That would be an awful lot of waste. He spends all of cherry season making large batches of amaretto to be used in cocktails like this one, a take on the classic Godfather cocktail.
