The How-to of an Amaretto Sour

Categories: Gastronomy;

Amaretto sour is actually a simple drink to make.  The ingredients are all available in your nearest grocery.  For the equipment, apart from the shaker, you can improvise on the others.

  • A rocks glass
  • Lemonade
  • Amaretto liquor
  • Lime juice
  • Lemon pinwheels for garnish
  • A shaker full of ice
  • A shot glass
STEP 1: Pour 3 shots of lemonade into the shaker.  You can opt for any powdered lemonade or go for freshly squeezed lemons.  Oranges actually work too but they’re not as sour.
STEP 2: Add in 2 shots of amaretto liquor.  Amaretto is an almond-based liquor that isvery sweet yet still has a slight bitterness from the almond.  The known brand you will encounter in liquor stores and bars would be the Amaretto Disaronno.
Step 3: Put 1.5 shots of lime juice.  This adds the tang in the drink.
Step 4: Give it a good shake.

Step 5: Pour into a rocks glass.

Garnish with a few lemon wheels and there you have it, your very own amaretto sour! 😀
