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.

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.
