I first became acquainted with Amaretto when I lived in Australia. My husband and I were young, entertained often, and went out to eat several times a week.

Liqueurs were popular as after-dinner drinks in restaurants and we enjoyed trying several different ones.

It was there that I developed a fondness for the almond-infused taste and aroma of Amaretto, making it the perfect addition to the vodka and pineapple in my Cuban Breeze cocktail.

Making the Cuban Breeze Cocktail

Creating this tantalizing cocktail is incredibly simple. You’ll need these ingredients:

  • 2 oz Amaretto (I used Basilica but Disaronno or any good quality Amaretto brand works well.)
  • 2 oz vodka
  • 6 oz pineapple juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Pineapple chunks to garnish

Any tropical drinks tastes (and looks) better with a good garnish. Like the drink, this one is easy, too!

Using a sharp knife, cut off the top of your pineapple and cut a triangle piece. Use the tip of the knife and slice the triangle so it will sit on the glass when the drink is prepared.

Mix vodka and amaretto over ice in a glass, and top it off with pineapple juice. The result is a refreshing and balanced drink that is both easy to make and delightful to savor.

Pair this delightful cocktail with my Cuban steaks in a mojo marinade for a culinary experience that complements the tropical essence of the drink.
