1. You can use any flavor of ice cream your heart desires. Not a strawberry ice cream lover? Vanilla or Neapolitan ice cream are delicious options for this sundae as well!
2. If you aren’t a fan of amaretto, you can substitute grand marnier, brandy, bourbon, rum or vodka!
3. If you are looking to macerate the berries without alcohol, simply nix the amaretto, use granulated sugar in place of the honey and increase the lemon juice to 1 tablespoon.
4. If you want to really take things over the top, try adding in shaved chocolate, flavored syrups, toasted sliced almonds and more! The sky really is the limit!
