Café Amaretto

Amaretto is a sweet almond-flavored liqueur of Italian origin. It is made from a base of apricot or almond pits, or sometimes both, with added spices and flavors. Some say it has a sweet cherry like flavor.

3/4 ounce Amaretto Di Saronno liqueur 
5 ounce hot black coffee 
1 ounce whipped cream 
1 teaspoon sugar 

Pour coffee and liquor into an Irish coffee cup  and sweeten to taste. Float the cream, and place three coffee beans  on top.
