Amaretto Sour

Yet another incredibly simple, delicious classic. Many women love this, so it may be a interesting new drink to make or order for the girl in your life.

Alcohol: 24%
You will need:
1½ oz (44ml) amaretto almond liqueur
1-2 splashes of sweet and sour mix
Ice
Shaker
Old-fashioned glass
Garnish: maraschino cherry and a twist of orange.

Instructions
Fill the shaker halfway with ice cubes and add the amaretto and sweet and sour mix. Shake well. Strain into glass. Remove the strainer from the shaker and drop 2-3 of the ice cubes into the glass. Add the cherry and the orange twist to the glass.

Tips:
DO NOT add soda or syrup to this drink. The amaretto is more than sweet enough and the maraschino cherry is already pushing it.

Enjoy!
