TGIF with an Amaretto-Cranberry Kiss

TGIF with an Amaretto-Cranberry Kiss

Autumn colors make this festive cocktail the perfect way to end the week. The nutty sweet flavor of Amaretto mingles with the tart taste of cranberry to “kiss” this martini with a feeling of fall. This enticing drink not only is a fantastic way to begin your weekend, but also your next holiday gathering.
