Make + Do: Amaretto Bourbon Sour

This drink warms you from within…and whisks you away to the Amalfi Coast. Think: a lovely balance of maple and almond with citrus undertones. It’s a fresh twist on the traditional sour with simple elements that you likely have on hand.



Ingredients: makes one cocktail

1½ oz amaretto (DiSaronno works well)

1 oz bourbon (we love Bulleit)

½ oz egg white, beaten

1 oz fresh lemon juice

2 tsp fresh orange juice


orange or lemon peel for garnish



Add all ingredients to shaker and gently shake to combine. Add cracked ice and shake again to chill. Pour into an old-fashioned glass and garnish with a twist.
