Blood Orange Amaretto Sour


Remember when I made amaretto ice cream? I bought an entire bottle of it and had no idea what to do with the rest, and one night Anthony made me an amaretto sour. To be honest, I don't like the taste of alcohol so I prefer the cocktails that taste like juice, herbs, and spices or a glass of complex red wine with hints of chocolate. But this cocktail that he made is going to be my new favorite at home drink while blood oranges are in season. Sharing this with you because it's really not fair for me to keep the recipe to myself!


Blood Orange Amaretto Sour

1 shot of bourbon

2 shots of amaretto

juice from half of a lemon

juice from half of a blood orange

drizzle of agave nectar

slice of blood orange for garnish

luxardo cherry



This recipe is super simple. Stir together the bourbon, amaretto, both juices, and agave nectar until all of the agave nectar dissolves. Add in the ice and stir some more. Finish with a luxardo cherry and a slice of blood orange for garnish.
