Amaretto Sour

Amaretto Sour is a palpable drink made with Amaretto, an Italian sweet almond flavored liqueur and lime juice. Its tantalizing sweet, sour and bitter taste is palatable and soothing to taste buds.

Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Serves: 1 serving
Glassware: Rocks Glass
60 ml (2 oz) Amaretto
30 ml (1 oz) Lime Juice
30 ml (1 oz) Simple Syrup
Lemon Twist
Maraschino Cherry
1 cup Ice Cubes


  1. Take amaretto, lime juice, simple syrup in ice filled cocktail shaker and shake heavily.
  2. Take chilled rock glass (old-fashioned glass) and put 4-5 ice cubes in it, pour cocktail over it.
  3. Drop lemon twist and maraschino cherry in the drink as garnish and serve.
Tips and Variations:

  • If simple syrup is not available, then use bar sugar or superfine sugar. If you are using sugar, then shake the cocktail little longer to make sure that sugar dissolves completely.
  • Add a splash of lemon lime soda like Sprite or 7 up in top of cocktail for more zing.
  • Add a splash of orange juice or pineapple juice for little more citrus flavor.
  • If you find this cocktail a bit bitter, then add more lime juice to balance out its bitterness.
  • You can use sour mix instead of lime juice and simple syrup.
