Bought a bottle of Di Sorano at Christmas for my cake and marzipan last year. Don't actually drink the stuff which is why I've had it 8 months.

Just used the last of it to soak sultanas.Now I need more for feeding the cake and the marizipan.

Should I bottle of the real stuff or is the Aldi own brand good enough.(Or Tesco/Sainsburys if they do one?)

Worth the extra money or not?

This isn't my Christmas cake I'm making now BTW. I'm not that organised!!!

I'd pick up both, and some sours mix too, and compare them by making amaretto sours. My favourite cocktail, how I miss it (22 weeks pg).

You can then give away the crap one, and use the good one for other things:
- in chocolate mousse
- cupcakes
- brownies
- to poach pears
- fudge

But seriously, I'd probably get the expensive one. There's nothing worse than that cheap almond taste you get from cheapo marzipan.
