Amaretto Sour | Cocktail Party

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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
