Drinks recipe // delicious amaretto sours cocktail


This is officially my favourite drink. In my world, a sours cocktail cannot be beaten and I love amaretto too. So this recipe for an amaretto sours cocktail is my idea of heaven. Here’s how I mixed up these yummy drinks and you can see from the photo that we enjoyed these drinks with my chocolate fridge cake that I blogged about yesterday – these sweet treats went perfectly together with all the cherry and marzipan flavours in the drinks and cake!

Amaretto sours cocktail recipe

Shake together with ice cubes:

  • 2 x 25 ml shots amaretto (almond liqueur)
  • 1 shot of lemon juice
  • 1 shot sugar syrup

Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry and lemon or lime slice, plus tacky mini umbrellas 😉 To get the frosted rim of the glass, rub a wedge of lemon or lime around the rim of the glass and dip into caster sugar. Enjoy!
