FAQ's

Can I substitute Amaretto with another liqueur in the Tony Stark's Mk VIII cocktail?

Yes, if you're out of Amaretto or just want to experiment with flavors, you can substitute it with a nutty liqueur like Frangelico for a hazelnut twist or Disaronno for a similar but slightly different almond flavor.

What is the best way to serve Tony Stark's Mk VIII?

Tony Stark's Mk VIII is best served in a lowball glass, as you've mentioned. To elevate the experience, consider chilling the glass beforehand.
