Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Amaretto Cruise skillfully blends the creamy, nutty flavors of amaretto with a vibrant splash of citrus and berry from the orange and cranberry juices. The addition of peach schnapps enhances the fruity profile, making this drink a decadently sweet treat with a complex, layered palate, where the creamy texture and zesty sour mix create a delightful contrast that's further enriched by the subtle warmth of white rum.
