Cocktail Making | Amaretto Sours
If I ever go out for cocktails I will always go for an Amaretto Sour. When I was at uni in Manchester there was a bar near where I lived called Font and it sells cocktails for £2!! So cheap, which is excellent when you're on a student budget. Font is where I first formed my love for this cocktail. But when I realised how simple it was to make I thought I'd give it a go at home!
What you need:
Amaretto (Disaronno is the same as Amaretto)
Lemons (or lemon juice)
Making cocktails is dependent on your taste buds, I do like sweet cocktails but I can only have one or two before they make me feel a bit sick. So I make my Amaretto Sours more on the sour side, so I add less sugar. For my drinks I use the juice of a whole lemon (or one shot of lemon juice), half a spoon of sugar, 1&1/2 shots of Amaretto and a whole lotta ice!
I think this cocktail is way better than your standard Cosmopolitan or Sex on the Beach. Give it a try! Saturday night cocktails anyone?
