This sweet and tart concoction combines the zesty tang of lime juice with the rich, nutty flavor of Amaretto and a splash of fruity Grenadine. The cocktail is named after the famous Bakewell tart, a pastry filled with jam and frangipane that originated in the English countryside town of Bakewell in the 19th century. Just like the dessert, this cocktail has a balanced and comforting flavor profile, perfect for sipping on a cozy evening. The cherry flavor from the Grenadine adds a hint of sweetness to the drink, making it a crowd-pleasing option for any occasion.
