Amaretto Sour
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz. amaretto
Stemmed cherry

Shake well over ice in a shaker. Strain into a sour glass, and garnish with the cherry.

Disaronno amaretto. I was not expecting this drink to taste so much like white wedding cake! I knew that amaretto is an almond-flavored liqueur, but I was surprised at how much almond came through. This was a bit sweet for my taste, but it was refreshing and quite good.

The name amaretto is a diminutive of the Italian amaro, which means “bitter,” referring to the distinctive flavor of the bitter almond.

Saúde! (Portuguese)
