Amaretto is an almond-flavored liqueur used in many cocktail recipes. The “secret sauce” to taking this recipe from good to great is the homemade Sweet and Sour Mix! It is surprisingly easy to make and just takes a few lemons and limes and a little bit of planning. Homemade Amaretto Liqueur is also easy to make! Use it in all of your favorite cocktails or package it up as a perfect homemade gift.

Amaretto Sour Recipe

Grab your three ingredients: Amaretto, sweet and sour mix, and Sprite. In a glass filled with ice, combine equal parts Amaretto and sweet and sour mix. Then top the glass with sprite. I don’t measure here, I just add enough to fill the glass and add some carbonation. An orange wedge and cherry make the perfect garnish.
