Cardamom Cocktail

If you like your drinks with a kick of spice, you love this cardamom cocktail. It’s super complex with just a hint of nutty sweetness, thanks to the Amaretto.

Cardamom is warm, citrusy, and quite herbal. However, if you use too much, it can be overpowering.

But when you add sweet vanilla and buttery pears to the mix? It’s downright delicious!
