Amaretto Whipped Cream

Super simple if you have an Isi thermo whip. I'm not sure how you'd do it without one. Maybe use a mixer to whip the hell out of the cream and slowly add the amaretto.

14 ounces (1 3/4 cup) heavy whipping cream
2 ounces (1/4 cup) amaretto

Mix together and pour into thermo whip. Charge, shake, and enjoy!

If you want to do a non-alcoholic version, I think you could try a scant 2 cups whipping cream and 2-3 teaspoons almond extract.

Amaretto actually isn't made with almonds, though it has an almond flavor. It has been claimed that the original batch was made with grape brandy and apricot pit kernels, with the main contemporary ingredient remaining apricot pit kernels.
