Tuesday Tipple

Yesterday, I spent some time down the chasm that is Pinterest researching liquor infusions. As a result, my Pinterest home page looks like Foster Brooks’ Christmas list. I shouldn’t complain. It’s far more exciting than chalk paint and book folding pins.

Moving on, I did find some recipes worthy of posting, but today I wanted to highlight a classic. I love Amaretto. It has such a beautiful aroma and flavor, and love to use it in baking. Weirdly, I can’t abide almonds in their natural state. But use them in liqueur and I am all over that. Don’t judge me.

Amaretto Sour

  • 1½ oz. Amaretto
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 orange slice
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Pour liquid ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake well, and pour over ice. Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.

Some people use sweet and sour mix instead of fresh ingredients. I prefer to control the sweetness. And by that, y’all know I mean INCREASE it. I would say I am what I drink, but this is a sour 😉

  1. One of my favorites, almonds are good in any form . . . yes, I’m judging you. Then again, I like almost anything sour. ‘Tis my disposition.

  2. I agree on the almonds and Amaretto thing. Try adding almond extract to french toast batter.

  3. That does good Aggie ! 😀 And RR, that is the mildest pic you have put up, at least nobody didn’t have to run to the eye bleach ! Even though that it is racist, it is funny.

    • Hm….I will look into cocktails featuring it, Blake 🙂

  4. I’ma joining up with the Franklin Mint and selling replicas of the plate in Moochie’s Obama’s massive lower lip. Gonna make me one of them fortunes!

    It’d have to be a serving plate – it’s FAR TOO BIG to be at any placesetting! LMAO! :mrgreen:
