Amaretto Sour

So this is the first bottle of Amaretto I've owned in my 20 plus years as a mixologist. I guess I was just waiting to build knowledge and live an an area where there's greater selection. Otherwise I would have bought an American knock-off without thinking. So this is the first Amaretto Sour I've made for the blog as well.

With only a sweet, cookie-like liqueur and lemon juice it was a little sugary and the flavors were very concentrated. But I didn't have to add sugar either, so the drink is simple and takes advantage of the sweetness of amaretto. Of course you have to try it--it's a classic!
  • 2 oz. amaretto (Lazzaroni used)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • orange slice
Combine all ingredients except orange in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a sour glass (poured into a rocks glass shown). Garnish with orange slice.
