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 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.

Ingredients

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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
