Amaretto is an Italian liqueur flavored with almonds and apricot pits.
Angostura bitters are the traditional bitters to use. It is a botanically infused, concentrated mixture of water, alcohol, and herbs exported from Trinidad & Tobago by the House of Angostura. The bottle has a distinctive oversized label.
Jeff prefers Myer's original dark rum to float on top of the cocktail. "Floating" a liquor means to layer a liquor by carefully pouring a small amount onto a spoon and drifting it on top.
