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.
