Classic Amaretto Sour


Sometimes the classics are all you need.  After weeks of creating holiday drinks; that entailed everything from infusing jalapenos in tequila to making peanut butter cocktails, we here at The Slow Roasted Italian needed to cleanse our palates and get back to simple.  We decided a delicious classic sippin' drink was just right.

Chad and I love everything amaretto.  He loves amaretto cake, amaretto icing, amaretto ice cream, and especially DiSaronno Amaretto.  So when he found this recipe it was a no brainer.  2 simple ingredients, 1 delicious taste!  It doesn't get better than that!

So, Slow Roasters, go to your kitchen grab your amaretto and your lemon juice and prepare for the splendor that is the Classic Amaretto Sour.

Classic Amaretto Sour
2 ounces DiSaronno Amaretto
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 cup ice
lemon (or lime) slice for garnish

Add ice, amaretto and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker.  Shake and serve (pouring ice into glass with drink).  Garnish with lemon slice.

Enjoy and repeat as desired!

  9. I like how you do a lot of classics. This looks great. We're doing tequila sunrises tonight, which made us think of you, might have to make one of these too.
