Amaretto Sour Cocktail

Amaretto Sour

The Amaretto Sour cocktail was created in 1974 by the importer of Amaretto di Saronno (known since 2001 as Disaronno Originale). It was a simple mix of 2 parts amaretto and 1 part lemon juice and became a popular cocktail in the 1980's

This smooth, sweet and sour cocktail contains less alcohol than many cocktails as the main ingredient is a liqueur. 

Since the classic cocktail was created, bartenders have mixed it up a bit, using a sour mix instead of lemon juice and adding egg white. You can also find bourbon in the mix on modern cocktail menus. Our recipe is a mix of the classix and modern, using Disaronno, lemon juice and egg white. 


45ml Disaronno Originale

Freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon

1 egg white


Cocktail Cherry


Seperate the egg white from the yolk and add to a cocktail shaker with the Disaronno and lemon juice. To allow the egg white to mix with the other ingredients, shake without ice. This is known as a dry shake. When mixed, add 3-4 ice cubes and shake again to cool the drink. Pour into a tumbler with the ice and garnish with a cocktail cherry.
