Put an Italian twist into your relaxing weekend the Italian way with a little amaretto twist to the modern classic Cosmopolitan cocktail.  This version weighs a slightly different flavor to the taste experience than the usual Sex and the City cocktail fair hued pink drink.  This version gives away the hint of almond immediately in aroma with medium flavor throughout.  Who knows there might be a little Cosmo in all of us after all…
