Amaretto Sour Cocktail


The Amaretto Sour cocktail is a drink built with Amaretto, Bourbon, Lemon juice, Sugar syrup, and egg!

Amaretto Sour Cocktail Info

The Italian liqueur Amaretto is often flavored with almonds and apricot stones. Although it can be used in many cocktails, its distinctive flavor is best known in the Amaretto Sour. This drink sadly has a bad reputation. This is because too many cocktails rely on premade sour mixes and are overly sweet, but it is excellent if you make it the right way!

You should take the classic Amaretto Sour and add fresh lemon juice and high-proof Bourbon to enhance it. Also, do not be afraid to use egg white to give the drink a little more body and texture. Egg white might seem strange, but it is a common addition to many sours, including the whiskey and Gin Sour.

This new version is magical. The Bourbon does not overshadow the amaretto but instead helps it stand out next to the tart citrus. This Amaretto Sour has a sweet, sour, and nutty taste. The changes made from the "original" make this cocktail more balanced.

An Amaretto Sour that has been updated to be more enjoyable. Share it with a friend, and I guarantee it will be appreciated.
