For DAYS before I tried this out, I salivated! Very tasty cocktail! Tad too sweet for my taste, but that can be rectified! Great concept to use limeande conc.! Will keep some in the freezer! Tried this out last "Margharita Monday," when a friend joined me for a happy hour afternoon. Thanks much for posting this recipe!

I love amaretto and am always looking for good recipes! Thanks for this one. I made it on the rocks because my daughter was sleeping and I didn't want to wake her with the blender. I sugared the glass, then measured the ingredients in equal parts then added handfulls of crushed ice from my fridge to the sugarline and stirred it a bit then topped it off with a little more amaretto and a splash of cointreau! Yum.


Whew Lawdy!! This is wonderful. Had this at Olive Garden last night and couldn't wait to find a recipe that is a close match. This is it. It is a bit more on the lime flavor than OGarden but it's close enough that I'll not need to order this again at the restaurant. My husband and I are both thrilled with this recipe. Can't wait to make this for my family next week during Thanksgiving eve appetizer dinner.
