Amaretto Sour


I'm not sure why Emily and I picked an Amaretto Sour to be the cocktail for our 70's themed fondue party, but when we were thinking of cocktail ideas it just seemed like the perfect 70's drink.  I decided to make my own sweet and sour mix instead of using the store-bought stuff which was a great decision because these Amaretto Sours were actually very tasty and our guests gave them rave reviews. 

Yield: Makes 12 drinks


  • 6 lemons
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • Amaretto Liquor
  • Maraschino cherries

Squeeze the lemons.  Use the sugar to make simple syrup by mixing with 1 cup boiling water until the sugar is dissolved.  Mix the lemon juice and simple syrup together.  Mix 3 parts Amaretto Liquor to 1 part sweet and sour mixture.  Serve cold or on ice with a Maraschino cherry.
