Cocktail Friday — Amaretto Sour

Amaretto Sours are one of my all time favorite cocktails.  And it seems like a bottle of Amaretto lasts FOREEEEEEVVVVVER, so it’s a great liquor to keep stocked.

Unfortunately, I rarely have Sweet and Sour Mix on hand.  But I found out how to make it myself!!

Amaretto Sours all around!!


4 ice cubes
3 oz amaretto
3 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tbs sugar syrup

Place all the ingredients in a shaker and shake for 30 seconds..  Serves two.

**For sugar syrup, heat 1 cup white sugar and 2/3 cup water to a simmer until sugar dissolves.  Bring to a boil and boil until syrupey.  Let cool and pour into a bottle.

Enjoy. Happy Friday!!
