I tried one...and then a couple more, for the first time last night. When I need more alcohol, I won't choose this drink, but for casual or social drinking this is the best there is!

I drink these all the time at bars and have been trying to make them at home. This is the best recipe I've found.

Not only can you match your friends drink for drink without getting sloppy drunk, your bar tab will be a lot less as well! At our usual hangout a margarita or other similar drink starts at 5.50 and goes up from there. The amaretto sour? 2.25! LOVE IT!
posted by Bitch Face @ 08:48PM, 6/16/06
I've tried this recipe for 2 weeks now at home.. I CANNOT get mine to taste like an Amaretto that is our served at a bar. I'm tired of trying so I'll stick with my Screwdrivers.
posted by Pro Toy @ 09:36PM, 6/17/06
Try this. Same recipe as listed, more Amaretto is better, add 1/2 oz. orange juice, crushed ice, and 1/2 cup fresh oranges in a blender. Blend until it's foamy. WOW, what a killer Jamba juiice!
Make it Better
posted by Stephanie @ 02:03AM, 6/22/06
I love this drink! Everyone is right, taste great but not enough liquor. To top off this already great drink, I put powdered sugar on the top of mine at home and it makes it that much better!
How bars make it...It's Sprite!
posted by Tara @ 10:10AM, 6/30/06
I asked the bartender how to make this because it is my absolute favorite if it's a double (more alcohol!). You need to top it off with Sprite. I did it at home and it tasted just like the bar. Now that you know what you were missing...don't go by the recipe. Make it to your taste by mixing them a little, tasting, mix, taste. Might take a minute, but you'll figure out how you really like the drink. I always use a juice glass (probably 8 or 12 oz), fill with ice to the rim or above, (with the pourer in the top) pour while counting to 4 or 5 the Amaretto, take it pretty much to top with Sour, then top off with Sprite. That's more alcohol than usual and it tastes like Kool Aid. Hope this helped!

A nice drink for sure
posted by Mike @ 04:04AM, 7/09/06
It's a great drink, everytime a customer orders one, they want another. The problem (for some people) with this one is the colour it seems. The dark golden colour of the Amaretto and the colour of the sweet and sour (or bar) mix comes out kind of strange, but is definately an excellent drink. Shake until there's a lot of foam. Shake it baby.
The only drink for me
posted by Ann @ 04:52PM, 7/12/06
I never had a stand by drink until this one. I'd always order whatever my friends were ordering, nothing was ever perfect (that kind of drink typically involves a lot more alchohol) but then I copied on this drink, and now, the hesitation is gone!

I LOVE Amaretto Sour. I think it's the best drink out there. I had one up in Boston at a bar when I went and then again down in Fort Lauderdale in Bahia Cabana at the Days Inn next to Fort Lauderdale beach (make sure to visit there if you're ever in Fort Lauderdale, it's a hot spot and it's a GREAT spot). Best drink for a fun vacation.

I'd never tasted this drink until one evening at a retirement dinner for one of my friends. My husband, my 23 year old son and I were enjoying the evening and I tried an amaretto sour. It was terrific!!! Nice ,smooth and not too much alcohol. My family enjoyed the evening with friends and a drink that's just right and not too much for ones system. The ONLY reason I didn't rate the drink a 10 is because as with anything I believe in leaving room for improvement. But in actuality, I think this drink is on the money and any improvement is more than likely a long way off.
My favorite drink!!

This is one of my favorite drinks ever. True, there isn't much alcohol in it...but it's still quite refreshing on a hot day.
Amaretto is also great with Pepsi or Coke. If you mix it right, you can't taste the booze...which makes it a drink that will sneak up on you!
A little tip
posted by Valerie @ 05:19PM, 11/14/06
If you want to make it 20 times better, in your shaker add a little bit of sugar and a drop of milk or cream. These 2 items will make your drink REALLY foamy! :)
ALWAYS my FAVORITE !

This has been my fave drink since I was legal. I recently bought an ice shaver for flavored ice in the summer, now when i make the sours I fill about 3/4 glass (it seems like a lot , but the shaved ice will pack down) that I am drinking from with the shaved ice ...then add a splash of cherry limeade (the Minute Maid light in a can ), mix again with straw and add some regular ice on top...yummy! And I agree on mixing to taste and adding a bit more alcohol. (DISaronno is the BEST!!!)

I knew about them before, but I like creamy-type drinks (like white russians) so I never ordered an amaretto sour. The name always scared me off cause I sure didn't want to drink something that tasted like sour cherries!! They should rename the drink to "Pure Heavenly Bliss" or something a little more fitting!!!!

If you don't like sour, you should try mixing 1/3 champagne, 1/3 amaretto di amore, and 1/3 orange juice. You can't taste the alcohol in it, but after more than a few, you can definitely feel the effects. It's the best drink ever!

My boyfriend has been making these for me for a long time, however we don't have the shakers so we take a large glass fill it almost to the top with ice, fill a little more than half way with amaretto, then the rest with sweet and sour mix...add a spash of cherry juice and club soda (rather than the sprite that some had mentioned). The way we make them a few glasses and 30 minutes later it's hitting you hard.

Add SPRITE. Most bars server Amaretto Sour Sodas when you ask for just a Sour. Probably because the soda is much better.

If you are using Disaronno, just double up on the amount of Amaretto used. It has a naturally sweet taste and it won't overpower the drink.
posted by mookie @ 10:20PM, 5/20/07
I've followed a barmaid course and they gave this super simple recipe for an Amaretto Sour. I find that using only sour mix with the liqueur makes it too sour. So add a tsp of extra fine sugar before shaking with ice. And also use the same amount of sour mix as you do Amaretto. You will NOT regret doing so. So delicious.
posted by Angie @ 08:41PM, 5/22/07
I just returned from the Mayan Riviera, Mexico and discovered the Amaretto Sour. WOW !!! I absolutely loved it. They used crushed ice and I believe either milk or cream. The best was they were free and unlimited.

It doesn't have that strong alcohol taste if it is made right and doesn't get you wasted unless you want it too. It also has a pleasing taste and doesn't make me feel nasty when I drink it. I love it. Has always been my fave and always will be my fave!
