A Sweet, Italian Liqueur for the Holidays

Bourbon Fizz

After a night on the line, most chefs have a go-to drink, from cheap beer to a house bartender's expert cocktail. Here, star chefs reveal their favorite drinks.

Baker Renato Poliafito of Brooklyn’s Baked likes his drinks on the sweeter side. “I like amaretto,” he says. “Straight up or on the rocks. That’s a nice sweet ending to a meal. That warm, slightly spicy flavor always reminds me of the holidays. I suppose it’s a little like the almond flavor of panettone: Italian pastries and sweets in general tend to have that almond-y, hazelnut-y, or pistachio element; they tend to rely heavily on the nuts. A great marzipan cake, an almond cake, all of those flavors remind me of winter.”
