Oh, this was a bit awesome. The only problem was that it was too small – I wanted another one straight away. The official recipe is at   As usual I substituted sugar syrup for agave syrup, as I always have agave syrup in the cupboard.  And used an egg white, which meant I had an egg yolk loitering in the fridge, after I forgot to make lemon curd with the leftovers.

This is truly a pleasure to drink. Picture yourself in a dusky bar, sipping elegantly from a delicious pre-dinner drink.  The almond taste from the amaretti makes it just that bit unusual.
