Rub the rim of an old-fashioned glass with lemon, and dip repeatedly into granulated sugar until it has a good "frosted" rim. Shake amaretto with lemon juice, and strain into the glass; over ice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry, and serve.

Better then Cheating w/ Sour Mix

Use lemon juice over the sour mix, much-much better.
Much better

This recipe is indeed far better with real lemon juice. The sugar-rimmed glass is a nice touch, too.
Not a true sour

Blend w/ a cherry on top of ice cubes....serve in a snifter.
Better, but still not the best

Lemon juice and sugar always rule over lame-ass sour mix. Add 1/2 oz. rum to make it do it's job even better :)
Add Cherry Coke/Cherry juice
