This Amaretto Stone Sour Cocktail has a bright citrus punch from sour soda and a fresh splash of orange juice mingling with the deep flavor of amaretto liquor.
You have heard of an Amaretto Sour no doubt, correct? Well, the Amaretto Stone Sour is its eccentric sibling. Never receiving enough attention growing up, it overcompensates by wearing bright splashes of orange to mask the booze and its overall sour disposition. Yeah, the Amaretto Stone Sour may have some mommy issues it needs to work through, but it is a dang good amaretto cocktail!
I have been accused of being mildly conceited in the past. I supposed it is a natural byproduct of being the best looking, most interesting human being I've ever met, but I try to keep it in check. However, I am not so arrogant as to think I know everything I need to know about food and drink. I am constantly trying to expand my epicurean horizons by asking people I trust to share some of their best recipes. That may be my grandma's Hot Bean and Sausage Salad, an old classmate's Apricot Bacon Jam, or even my boss' Amaretto Stone Sour Cocktail recipe!
As a former bartender for many years, I knew my boss would be a great source for a delicious cocktail recipe, and she didn't let me down! This amaretto cocktail features the bright citrus punch of sour soda and a fresh splash of orange juice mingling with the deep flavor of amaretto liquor. After letting my wife sample the creation her eyes lit up and she exclaimed that we needed to make a bigger batch!
I find keeping a jigger on hand makes cocktail creation much easier. There is a reason every bar uses them, plus their compact size makes it easy to keep them out of the way when it isn't happy hour at home! I recommend purchasing a simple double jigger, its 1&2 oz sizes will be versatile enough for just about any cocktail!
