What is a fizz?
A fizz is a cocktail with a tangy base (e.g. lime or lemon), sparkling water and a spirit.
It’s a classic cocktail and it is so popular, you can find it declined in many versions.
One of the most known fizz cocktail is the gin fizz, but you can also find recipes with vodka, rhum or with vermouth, like the Torino Fizz.

Requiring just 3 ingredients (sparkling water, amaretto and lemon), this cocktail recipe is easy and quick to prepare.
The result is a cocktail in which the almond flavor of the amaretto is clearly present, while the lemon notes add an invigorating acidity.

In short, it’s a simple, sparkling and fresh cocktail, with a low alcohol content, just as we like them!
How to prepare an amaretto fizz cocktail
Choosing the right amaretto for your cocktail
Originating from Italy, Disaronno is world-renowned for its almond flavor, even though it contains no nuts. Its recipe, a well-kept secret, dates back centuries, offering a wealth of history with every sip.
Although Disaronno is the preferred choice for this recipe, don’t hesitate to try other brands of amaretto to discover different nuances. You’ll find some very good ones made in Quebec, like Avril from Distillerie Mariana or Amy from Distillerie Qc North Shore.
When preparing the cocktail
Serve this Disaronno cocktail in a highball glass for a classic look or be creative with other glass shapes or goblets to add a personal touch to your presentation.
Use large, quality ice cubes to avoid rapid dilution. The choice of soda or sparkling water can also vary according to your preferences, allowing you to personalize your cocktail.
The choice of garnishes: to add an original touch to this amaretto cocktail recipe, you can vary the choice of toppings, opting for orange slices instead of lemon zest, maraschino cherries, a sprig of rosemary or mint, or incorporating a dash of flavored syrup.
