Amaretto Sour

Another drink that’s part of the sour family, but a variation that offers an upgrade from the traditional version. The Amaretto Sour, in the 70s, called for simply Amaretto and simple syrup. This take on the cocktail, comes from Portland, Oregon bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler. His Amaretto Sour is frothy, sweet, sour, nutty and strong, and the changes he makes to the recipe create a more balanced cocktail.


  • 1 1/2 oz Amaretto Liqueur
  • 3/4 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz Freshly Squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon Simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz egg white
  • Garnish: Lemon Twist
  • Garnish: Brandied Cherries


This cocktail was inspired by Add all ingredients into a shaker and dry-shake (no ice). Add ice and shake again for 20-30 seconds or until well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon twist and two brandied cherries.
