I will always order an Amaretto Sour! So it was time that I perfected the recipe. Three ingredients shaken then topped off with Sprite makes the perfect classic cocktail!

The fact that I can get fresh lemons and oranges for this cocktail in the middle of the winter makes my heart sing! So don’t cheat yourself by not using freshly squeezed lemons or a slice of orange to garnish!

Questions and Comments:

  • Do I need to use freshly squeezed lemon juice?

YES, it’s worth it. YES, you are worth it! We are so lucky to have fresh fruit year-round.

What is Cocktail Simple Syrup?

  • Simple syrup is normally a 1:1 ratio of sugar and water, I like to make Cocktail Simple Syrup which is a little sweeter.
