Amaretto Sour

Amaretto Sour cocktail, with bourbon, amaretto, lemon juice and simple syrup

The traditional amaretto sour you’d get in any bar is a sickly-sweet mixture of amaretto and sour mix. We much prefer expert bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler’s version, with bourbon adding a little depth. He specifically calls for cask-aged bourbon, which stands up well to the otherwise-cloying sweetness of amaretto.

Like all egg white (or aquafaba) drinks, you should dry-shake first without ice, and then again with ice, and you should double-strain it through both your shaker’s strainer and a fine mesh strainer.

Instructions

Dry-shake once without ice, then add ice, shake again, and double-strain over ice in an old fashioned glass, or strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon peel and/or a cherry.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
