If you’ve been looking for a drink to enjoy that effortlessly gives off vibes of history and refinement, why not start with an Italian liqueur that has been around for over 500 years?

Produced in Saronno, Italy, Disaronno is the original amaretto and has used the same secret recipe since 1525, a blend of all natural and no artificial flavours. With its velvety smooth taste and unmistakable aroma, Disaronno has long held the reputation of the world’s favourite Italian liqueur. Maybe it’ll be your new favourite as well.

In celebration of International Disaronno Day on April 19, enjoy these five guaranteed-to-impress cocktails by mixologist expert Monica Carbonell, founder and beverage director at Liquid Culture in Toronto.
